[K12OSN] Help! Squidguard will not obey the ACLs in the conf file

I'm not sure, but you can check out my squidguard page and see if
anything helps you in there.
We would probably have to see a copy of your squidGuard.conf file to
be able to help you troubleshoot the problem.

I just use this script that I tweaked that rebuilds the filter lists
and then restarts squidguard.
This usually helps apply any changes I've made.

[root at ltsp40 root]# cat rebuildallfilter.sh
/usr/sbin/squidGuard -c /etc/squid/squidGuard.conf  -C all
chown -R squid.squid /var/squidGuard/blacklists/
chown -R squid.squid /var/log/squidGuard/
sleep 5s
/usr/bin/killall -HUP squid
sleep 5s
tail -n 80 /var/log/squidGuard/squidGuard.log

I also have a few other custom scripts to just rebuild the custom
lists that I change often.
