Videocache is no longer in development.

PFsense 1.2.3 /squid syntax error

by Alan87i on 2 Mar 2010

Hello All
I've run into a tree along the road with my configuration of videocache on my Pfsense box. I'm using the guidline found here

Now I'm not a shell person But I managed to learn how to use VI from an ssh connection to my pfsense computer and pasted the extra config text into the file and saved it. When I restart squid and go to it's config menu from the gui I get a syntax error. I pasted this at the bottom of the file. Now to a fellow like me I have NO clue what "Add the lines after acls" means So I stuck it at the bottom. That should be updated!

I have read some other posts here concerning the same basic issue but they all seem to deal with a linux OS This being bse I didn't trust my self to use any commands that might fix this issue from other systems.

Also any tips on how to check the rest of the install would be sweet , Working from shell and finding a file is like driving in the dark with a candle for headlights.

Ran -K parse , This is after I deleted the added lines form the config file.

After hours of messing around I managed to get squid to run again.
I'm still stuck on where exactly the extra lines are to be inserted after the alc. What part is before and what part is after. It's a simple question does anyone have an answer?

Hi Alan,

I am sorry for the late reply. The lines mentioned on installation page can be inserted in squid.conf either on top or bottom. Please contact using Contact link on top.

Thank You!
