This script performs a database rebuild for any blacklists listed in the default Squidguard config file `/etc/squid/squidGuard.conf'. After rebuilding the databases it will reload Squid / Squid3 so that it will make use of the updated lists.


-v | --verbose

Show some more information and switch on progress bar when updating database.

-c | --checkdb

Check Berkeley \s-1DB\s0 version and rebuild full database only if Berkeley \s-1DB\s0 version have changed. This option should be used after upgrade of squidguard to reduce wasteful wait time.
