config.txt stanza change is not applied

Symptom
  • A stanza change has been made to config.txt, and EZproxy has been restarted with no errors in messages.txt
  • The change is not reflected in the behaviour of EZproxy
Applies to
  • All versions of EZproxy
Resolution

1. Remove conflicting stanzas

Check if there are conflicting stanzas and comment them out or delete them.

When there are multiple stanzas for the same domain / host name, EZproxy may choose the one that has not been changed.

For example, if you adjusted a stanza for example.com, check for other occurances of example.com in your config.txt.

 

2. Clear the browser cache

The old, unproxied version of a resource (HTML, JavaScript) may still be in your browser cache.

Clear the cache, close and re-open the browser to make sure nothing is in the cache.
