System update issue in Ubuntu 6.06
I have recently ran the software update wizard in Ubuntu 6.06 LTS, when i did the latest update it played up with squid proxy and also with dansguardian. I have webmin installed on the server so that I can manage the server remotely, and when I try to start the squid proxy through webmin it comes back with the error displayed below:
Failed to start Squid :
FATAL: Could not determine fully qualified hostname. Please set 'visible_hostname'
Squid Cache (Version 2.5.STABLE12): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 0.004 seconds = 0.004 user + 0.000 sys
Maximum Resident Size: 0 KB
Page faults with physical i/o: 0
I then went into the squid.conf file in /etc/squid/ to reset this however I was unable to find this line.
Can someone please help me ASAP
Maybe you can add this line manually in the squid configuration file?
Or manually start the squid server in /etc/init.d/ ?
Thanks, but iv already tired both of these
The best solution is to set the name of your system correctly. You can use Webmin to set it up in the Network Configuration: DNS Client page, plus you need to actually make the name resolve, either via a hosts file entry or a DNS record (preferred--just setting it in hosts doesn't do anything useful for your proxy users, which is why this check exists).
If you must use the visible_hostname option you can set it in Webmin's Squid module in the Administrative Options page. The field is labeled "Visible hostname".
But, if you use visible_hostname, any error pages it generates will point to a non-existent name.
