Anon,

Paste the lines to squid, and then run this command

[root@localhost ~]# squid -k parse [ENTER]

And see if there are any syntax errors.
Report back with results if the problem persists.

I have the same problem , same error ..
already set url_rewrite_children to 10
but no hope !!!!!!

squid 2.7stable5 on Debian 4 etch ..

please i need help ....

by Kulbir Saini on 22 Feb 2009

Anon,

Please follow these steps.

  1. Check your /var/log/squid/cache.log for errors such as python tracebacks.
  2. Check /var/log/squid.out for any errors.
  3. Use command "squid -k parse" to check if there are any syntax error in your squid.conf file.

If nothing seems to help, please paste your /etc/videocache.conf and /var/log/videocache/videocache.log file at http://pastebin.com and give us the urls.

Thank You!

1- the errors in cache.log are like :

2- I can't find /var/log/squid.out !!!
3- squid -k parse doesnt show anything ..
for /etc/videocache.conf : http://pastebin.com/m30cd297a
for /var/log/videocache/videocache.log : http://pastebin.com/m5e14260d

please I need your help , thanks in advance ..

by Kulbir Saini on 22 Feb 2009

Anon,

Your setup went perfectly ok. And your config file is also ok. Did you check the path to python on your system and path specified in videocache specific configuration in squid.conf ? They should be same otherwise videocache will never run.

Other thing me be that you have incorrect permissions of your cache directories. Please confirm. They should be squid:squid and 755.

Thank You!

by Anonymous on 22 Feb 2009

the squid cache directories are
nobody nogroup

does it effect ??

by Anonymous on 22 Feb 2009

this is the cache.log if it will help solving the problem :
http://pastebin.com/m45396351

by Anonymous on 23 Feb 2009

by Kulbir Saini on 23 Feb 2009

Anon,

I could not understand what you meant by "but no cache when i play them again !!!!"? Please be descriptive while asking.

Thank You!

by RedirectProblem on 4 Mar 2010

Hi!
I use Centos 5.4, squid 2.6 stable21

I want to redirect some url-s to another using a redirector.pl Perl script (which I was downloaded from the internet).

But I have the same problem:

2010/03/04 10:46:13| Too few url_rewriter processes are running
2010/03/04 10:46:13| storeDirWriteCleanLogs: Starting...

2010/03/04 10:46:13| Took 0.0 seconds (2109029.0 entries/sec).
FATAL: The url_rewriter helpers are crashing too rapidly, need help!

I was trying everything I saw above, but nothing helps. I was put the "redirector.pl" script into squid directory (etc/squid) and the permission of the file is 777, the owner and group is squid.

In the squid.conf file I set:

url_rewrite_program /etc/squid/redirect.pl
url_rewrite_children 10

for command "squid -k parse" nothing happens.

But the problem is the same!

Can you help me?

Thanks

When I comment out the videocache configuration part squid starts normally.
In videocache logs from time to time (once per ca. 5 start attepts) I get:

2010-03-10 15:22:38,315 17844 - - XMLRPCSERVER - Starting XMLRPCServer on port 9100.
2010-03-10 15:22:38,320 17844 - - SCHEDULEDER - Download Scheduler starting.
2010-03-10 15:22:42,531 17844 - - RELOAD - videocache plugin was reloaded.

Where is the problem?

by knopix90 on 11 Mar 2010

please check the daemon of videocache from ps -ax, it seems the daemon still running

by Daniel on 11 Mar 2010

Ok.. after 24h of trying different things I found a solution. I created a script called

/usr/local/sbin/start_videocache

with content:

#!/bin/bash
/usr/bin/python /usr/share/videocache/videocache.py

and replaced the line in squid.conf:

url_rewrite_program /usr/bin/python /usr/share/videocache/videocache.py

with:

url_rewrite_program /usr/local/sbin/start_videocache

So it seems squid doesn't accept white characters in url_rewrite_program directive. Is it just an issue with my version of squid? Do you know how to fix it?

by jose on 11 Mar 2010

hello, I use centos + squid2.6
I have the same error pro se that has to do with "/usr/share/videocache/videocache.py" If you remove this line up this service.

Thank You!

Please increase the number of file descriptors. You are running squid with default number of file descriptors.

Hi Samuelito,

Videocache doesn't work fine if you have selinux turned on. Please check squid has write access to cache directories and log directory.

Thank you!

Hi!

SELinux is preventing videocache from accessing log files and cache directories. Please either create exception for videocache or disable selinux to make it work properly.

Thanks!

Hey.....guys....found a way to make it work.

DISABLE SELINUX!!!!!!!

edit /etc/selinux/config and change the SELINUX line to SELINUX=disabled:

REBOOT!
