What does squid -k parse output? Is it bungled?

Hi Anon,

I think copy pasting the lines to your squid.conf might have messed things up. Please check errors in your squid.conf with squid -k parse or paste the error to http://pastebin.com/ .

Thank you for using videocache :)

I had the same error....

FATAL: Bungled squid.conf line 249: url_rewrite_program /usr/bin/python /usr/share/videocache/videocache.py
Squid Cache (Version 2.6.STABLE22): Terminated abnormally.

please advise... also note that I have copied and paste it directly in the bottom of squid.conf file !

thank you,
Regards,

Maroon,

Can you run "squid -k parse" and paste the output here? Also paste the cache.log file at http://pastebin.com .

Thank You!
