smeserver packaged version

J Bennett has packaged squidguard into a sme server compatible application.

If you have not installed the Dag repository please follow this instruction.

The following command will configure the Dag repository on SME Server. Dag After adding it to the database we have to update the changes to the configuration file:

signal-event yum-modify

Download smeserver-squidguard-1.0-34.noarch.rpm to a folder on your sme server

wget http://mirror.contribs.org/contribs/jbennett/sme7/squidguard/RPMS/smeserver-squidguard-1.0-34.noarch.rpm 

cd to the folder on your sme server where smeserver-squidguard is located and do

yum localinstall smeserver-squidguard*.rpm --enablerepo=dag

That should install the correct package and any dependency rpms it requires. You must have the dag repository configured on your sme server (with status=disabled).

After installing the packages you must do

signal-event post-upgrade
signal-event reboot

This will restart your server. The web interface will not work if you fail to do the above commands.

Then use the server manager panel to control it all. There is a DB command to configure the blacklist. The default blacklist location is http://ftp.ost.eltele.no/pub/www/proxy/squidGuard/contrib/blacklists.tar.gz

If you wish to change the default blacklist to something else do (for example)

config show squidguard
config setprop squidguard Blacklist http://www.shallalist.de/Downloads/shallalist.tar.gz

The supdate script will convert the lists to *.db files which load a lot faster when stopping and starting squidguard.

Use the content filtering panel in server-manager, to add entries. You have trusted and untrusted (domains, urls, expressions). Add your entries, then restart squid with

/etc/rc7.d/S90squid stop
/etc/rc7.d/S90squid start

You will know when things are ready when you see this in the /var/log/squidguard/squidguard.log file:

2007-03-18 17:14:54 [3687] squidGuard 1.2.0 started (1174256093.054)

2007-03-18 17:14:54 [3687] squidGuard ready for requests (1174256094.968)
