Apr 17, 2008 Squid: unrecognized httpd_accel_port, httpd_accel_with_proxy on, httpd_accel_uses_host_header

Squid proxyI was recently installing squid at home as a single caching proxy for all computers in my home network. The simple way is just running squid on your linux router as is and configuring every single browser on all computers in your network so they access internet using squid. That’s doable, but boring. The more interesting way is setting up transparent proxy so all your http traffic goes through squid automatically. I’m not going to explain how to setup the transparent proxy as there are tons of articles in the internet about that, for instance:

  • http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-setup-transparent-proxy-squid-howto.html
  • http://tldp.org/HOWTO/TransparentProxy.html
  • http://www.deckle.co.za/squid-users-guide/Transparent_Caching/Proxy

The documentation is very straightforward, and has just one problem: it is outdated and doesn’t work with the most recent versions of squid. I’ve read several instructions and was always ending up with these error messages:


2008/03/23 01:51:52| parseConfigFile: line 26 unrecognized: 'httpd_accel_port 80'
2008/03/23 01:51:52| parseConfigFile: line 27 unrecognized: 'httpd_accel_with_proxy on'
2008/03/23 01:51:52| parseConfigFile: line 28 unrecognized: 'httpd_accel_uses_host_header on'

Feb 1, 2008 “Cannot load adsense-deluxe.php” problem with AdSense-Deluxe Plugin for WordPress

The AdSense-Deluxe plugin is just wonderful! I used Adsense Manager before and didn’t like the fact it uses old code for Google Adsense and I can do nothing about that. AdSense-Deluxe is way simpler and allows you to modify the actual code – very smart move. Unfortunately after installation it may report “Cannot load adsense-deluxe.php” when you try to add new ad block. Here is the fix to the problem.
