Description Mauricio Andrés Bustamante Viveros 2019-10-31 03:31:40 CET
Description of problem:
In MGA7, the squid rpm, installs files that must be located in /etc/ into /etc/squid....

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
squid 4.7 && 4.8 from updates

How reproducible:
Every time:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install squid
2.go to /etc/squid, into this folder, you will locate logrotate.d, sysconfig and other files these in MGA6 squid 3.5.27 are located into /etc
3.The squid service starts normally, but the log rotation and the dependant ifup start when the NIC is again active will not function

Assigning to QA,


Some sysconfig files are not installed where they should be (e.g. the logrotate file are installed in "/etc/squid/logrotate.d/squid" instead of "/etc/logrotate.d/squid").
So this update fixes this issue.

Checked that /etcs/quid/logrotate.d/squid does not exist, but /etc/logrotate.d/squid does.
Changed firefox to use localhost as proxy at port 3128.
Pointed firefox to a valid and an invalid URL. These  are found in /var/log/squid/access.log.
All OK for me.
