If problems are encountered with Lightsquid, especially on pfSense 2.2, then one possible solution is to clear out several related files/directories and reinstall, as follows:

  • Uninstall lightsquid
  • Clear out the local perl5 libraries
rm -rf /usr/local/lib/perl5
  • Clear out the existing lightsquid settings
rm -rf /usr/local/etc/lightsquid
  • Clear out the existing lightsquid web links/pages
rm -rf /usr/local/www/lightsquid
  • Remove a potentially-broken perl binary/link
rm /usr/local/bin/perl
  • Remove a potentially-broken perl binary/link
rm /usr/bin/perl
  • Reinstall lightsquid
