Do you have enough space for the configured size for the configured cache dir?

Check for the visible_hostname in squid.conf. I think that you have not set it. By default it will be commented.
nbaloch , check if you have enough space for the cache and permission of swap.state in /var/spool/squid. It's owner should be proxy.

please check the owner and group of /var/log/squid
change them to squid
also give "visible_hostname" as your squid server host name.
give correct path for cache,access and store log
Execute /usr/sbin/squid -z

and start squid manually by giving following command

/usr/sbin/squid -D

HI prasanta,

I have managed to start the squid.

But when I tried to access any site i am getting following error

While trying to retrieve yahoo site

The following error was encountered:
Access Denied.
Access control configuration prevents your request from being allowed at this time. Please contact your service provider if you feel this is incorrect.

I think that you have defined some acl's that prevents you from accessing the sites. Have you created a acl specifying that this are the comps that will be using the squid for internet access ? And if you have then define,

http_access allow <defined acl>
