    Squid problems - The redirector helpers are crashing too rapidly, need help!

    Dear All

    I have come in this morning to find our local proxy is giving a few errors and not allowing us to access the web through it. If we bypass the proxy everything is fine.

    If I check the status using tail -f /var/log/critical/current. It comes up saying the following

    "The redirector helpers are crashing too rapidly, need help!"

    I have checked the status also in webmin under system status and squid proxy is down and if I try to start the squid service up again, it just fails and remains on start squid.

    I thought it may be an issue with the cache and logs becoming huge so also deleted those but this doesn't seem to have resolved the problem. I have also restarted it.

    Can you help?

    You remembered to re-create them afterwards and make sure they had correct ownership rights?

    rm access.log
    touch access.log
    chown nobody access.log
    chgrp nogroup access.log

    Same for cache.log, store.log.
