I'm having some problems with a Squid redirect. The system:
Fedora 12 - fully updated as of April 6, 2010
Transparent-Proxying installed (runs as a service)
Server has 2 NIC's
Server is configured as a bridge
Transparent proxy configured and working
Trying to setup a Captive Portal as detailed on the following site:
All components for the Captive Portal are installed.
Here is the problem. The last item to do for the Captive Portal was modify squid.conf, which was done. Immediately, when restarting the Squid service, I got the following error (several errors shown, but each instance is from one attempt to stop and start the squid service):
squid: ERROR: Could not send signal 0 to process 2983: (3) No such process
squid: ERROR: Could not send signal 0 to process 3457: (3) No such process
squid: ERROR: Could not send signal 0 to process 7763: (3) No such process
squid: ERROR: Could not send signal 0 to process 7867: (3) No such process
Terminal window shows the following:
[root@pns-linux admin]# service squid stop
Stopping squid: [FAILED]
[root@pns-linux admin]# service squid status
squid dead but pid file exists
What is causing the failure and errors is the following lines in the squid.conf file:
If I comment the two lines out, Squid and the transparent proxy works fine, but then there is no redirection for the Captive Portal. The redirect.php is there and it is set to allow execution. It is almost as if the url_rewrite_program is not there. I have looked in the file system for it, but found nothing. My guess is it is probably a procedure in a configuration file.
Any help would be appreciated. This has been dogging me for three days now.
