Hi all,

Currently have multiple domains being served by a reverse proxy on squid - I need to add config on my current squid server to display different error pages depending on the domain requested.

Usually custom errors are part on the systems to which the data/requests are passed.

If the reverse proxy secures a web server, the custom error configuration will be on the web server.
Could you provide an example of a request and the error message you would like to see on the client?

On my squid config i have the following line:

error_directory /usr/share/squid/errors/templates/error_templates

and under /usr/share/squid/errors/templates/error_templates I have an .html page that shows up when the end web server doesn't respond (timesout, etc.). and this shows for any request on any of the test1.com, test2.com, test3.com domains that I cache.


What i'd like is to have something on my main squid.conf file that will point to a specific 'error_directory' directive depending on what's accessed:

something like:

if user requests: www.test1.com then error_directory /path/to/test1/errorpage/
if user requests: www.test2.com then error_directory /path/to/test2/errorpage/
if user requests: www.test3.com then error_directory /path/to/test3/errorpage/

and so on.

Have a look at http://wiki.squid-cache.org/Features/CustomErrors depending on your installed squid version

Your local apache setup could be the backup to display the sorry we are temporarily unavailable.

I.e. primarily test1.com -> 10.0.0.2 when down return something site specific error.
