Setting up Squid 2.4 on Mandria 10


We are tring to set up our Mandria 10 distro as a proxy. We are going with Squid 2.4 as our software of choice.

We have done the following steps:

Complied ("make" and "make install") Squid - No Errors
Created user and group "Squid"
We tried to run squid -z as our tutorial instructed but it is not found in:
/usr/local/squid/bin

So we created the cache manually at:
/usr/local/squid/cache

And used Chown to change ownership of the file to "Squid"

Then we ran ./RunCache & which yeilded errors.

Looking into the error log, it told us that we need to set visible_hostname in the squid.conf file.

We did this by addind the line:

visible_hostname arltoyproxy

But we still get the error. Is there anything we need to run/restart to get squid to pick up the change?

Thanks in advance.
