Installing squidGuard

  1. Unpack the source
     tar xvzf squidGuard-1.2.1.tar.gz

  2. Compiling

    If no errors occurred squidGuard is now installed in /usr/local/. There are a couple of option you can use when running ./configure. For example:

    Installing in a different location
     ./configure --prefix=/some/other/directory

     cp /path/to/your/blacklist.tar.gz /usr/local/squidGuard/db
    cd /usr/local/squidGuard/db
