Ticket #14952 (new defect)
Privoxy 3.0.8_1 fails to start following install
|Reported by:||faircloth@…||Owned by:||macports-tickets@…|
After installing Privoxy using macports (3.0.8_1 on OS X 10.5.2), the daemon fails to start with the appropriate launchctl command. A search of the logs indicates:
Apr 07 16:22:52.494 Privoxy(000000a0) Info: Privoxy version 3.0.8
Apr 07 16:22:52.503 Privoxy(000000a0) Info: Program name: /opt/local/sbin/privoxy
Apr 07 16:22:52.503 Privoxy(000000a0) Fatal error: can't load actions file '/opt/local/etc/privoxy/standard': No such file or directory. Note that beginning with Privoxy 3.0.7, actions files have to be specified with their complete file names.
It appears that the old (3.0.6) config file carried over to 3.0.8_1? Therefore appending .action to the actionsfile(s) corrects the problem (@ line 337-339 in /opt/local/etc/privoxy/config):
actionsfile standard.action # Internal purpose, recommended
actionsfile default.action # Main actions file
actionsfile user.action # User customizations
It should be mentioned that I initially attempted to "upgrade" from 3.0.6, ran into the problem, uninstalled all versions of privoxy, reinstalled 3.0.8_1, ran into the same problem w/ the daemon not running, edited the config file, and restarted privoxy -> problem solved.
Perhaps my old config file from 3.0.6 was hanging around?
