I made some changes to the /etc/squid/squid.conf file and issued the command /sbin/service squid restart. However, this command takes way too much time to restart the server. How do I tell squid to just reread the config file and apply new changes under Linux operating systems?

Our customer support wiki runs on an internal host (ip:192.168.1.100:300, hostname a-node100.:300) and it is behind the nginx reverse proxy server. However, our Apache server end up displaying internal server name http://a-node100.:300/, which results into an unexpected redirection and timeouts as http://a-node100.:300/ is not accessible over the Internet. How do I force nginx or apache to use the base URL of our server (http://support.example.com/wiki/)?

I’ve setup Squid Proxy server as described here, but I’m getting errors which read as follows:

How do I fix this problem?
