I am trying to set up squidGuard, but when I run the following nothing happens. No cpu/disk/network activity it just hangs. What may be wrong?

sudo -u proxy squidGuard -C all

Black lists must be in correct place.

if config cantains

dbhome /var/lib/squidguard/db

dest xxxx {
        domainlist xxxx/domains
        urllist xxxx/urls

then files /var/lib/squidguard/db/xxxx/domains and /var/lib/squidguard/db/xxxx/urls must exist.

squidGuard -d -b -P -C all
