automatic updates for squidguard blacklist
« on: May 14, 2016, 01:09:38 pm »
As far as I discovered, blacklists in squidguard have to be updated manually. Would be perfect if there was a possibility for automatic updates, to keep users on the safe side.

Thanks Geek!

It was a few minutes puzzling, but I think it's configured right now. The only thing left is to Save and Apply the squidguard configuration to apply the new database. I'm looking for a script to do that (or a script to reboot pfsense once a day at, for example, 4 a.m. Any solutions/suggestions?

Greetings, Sourcefinder

And, I'm ashamed to admit, but I don't know in what log to look to check wether the database has been updated...
