It shows up when you type ps -A? If so double check you conf file for correct syntax, or post it and we'll have a look..

for example

but not working for the expressions and many sites like

my location of the database is


please check this conf file for me and tell me the error if possible

squidGuard.conf is mentioned below

logdir /usr/local/squidGuard/log
dbhome /usr/local/squidGuard/db/

dest porn {
domainlist porn/domains
expressionlist porn/expressions
urllist porn/urls

rewrite {

acl {
default {
pass !porn all
