I am trying to setup squid2.5 on linux fedora 4 as a reverse proxy for
multiple domains

This is my config file:

httpd_accel_host virtual

httpd_accel_port 8888 (apache port)

httpd_accel_single_host off

httpd_accel_uses_host_header on

in /etc/host.conf i have the following

order hosts,bind

however when squid runs it doesnt seem to recognize host.conf.

I get the following error when i enter the url http://site1/

The requested url could not be found

While trying to retrieve the URL: http://site1:8888

Unable to determine IP address from host name for site1

If anyone knows how to get squid to recognise site1 that would be a
great help.
