Squid problem


Dear All

Without seperate cache dir, my squid is working fine.

I plan to create 4 partitions ( cache1..cache4). When i run the squid service, it's failed.it is giving the following error message. Kindly help me for enabling the cache directories.

I verified permission of cache dirs also.
drwxr-xr-x 2 squid squid 4096 May 31 15:30 /cache1
drwxr-xr-x 2 squid squid 4096 May 31 15:30 /cache2
drwxr-xr-x 2 squid squid 4096 May 31 15:30 /cache3
drwxr-xr-x 2 squid squid 4096 May 31 15:30 /cache4

Thanks venkat

your squid daemon user doesn't have permission to write to those locations. use chmod or chown to change them.

Check the cache_effective_user username in squid.conf and see if that user exists in /etc/passwd file If so... Try this
Assuming squid is the cache_effective_user.

chown -R squid.squid /cache*
chmod -R 750 /cache
then run
squid -z
and restart squid
/etc/init.d/squid restart

Hi

I checked the permission..it is has the correct permissions only for user squid.
I verified through net. I got the info saying that store.c-patch needs to install.

I am not sure..I removed the entire squid.

and download the squid src files..compiled and installation has done. Now i can see the cache directory. I created through 'squid -z' command only.

Now problem is, i am getting the following error..i am not using the squidguard.
in squid.conf, time is not specified. why i am getting the following error. How to solve.

Server time is also correct time. i verified that also.
