Dear Ubuntu Support and fellow users,
I'm trying to set up a proxy using Squid3 on a remote Server.
I've been trying whole day to get Squid to work.
Late this afternoon I found a post saying it was easier to configure with Webmin.
So completely removed Squid3 and all programs associated.
After I installed Webmin and Squid3 from console, I setup the config file from squid3.
Then I tried to start it up inside Webmin, it didn't want to create a cach directory under Root (I know I'm a n00b) so I created an new user for it. I pressed it and it ran without an error.
squid_restart=squid3 -k reconfigure
squid_start=service squid3 start
squid_stop=service squid3 stop
So I went back to the squit main page and I keep getting this error.
When I say it should start squid3 from console it says it started.
Your Squid cache directory /var/spool/squid3 has not been initialized.This must be done before Squid can be run.
When I look at the proceslist it just states [ ? ]
I have no clue weather it's running or not.
Anybody got any idea?
Thanks in advanced.
