just stop squid, and erase all the files in your cache directory... for example:
Code:
squid -k shutdown

rm -fr /var/lib/squid/cache/*
then re-create the swap directory structure:
Code:
squid -z
then start squid again...


PS: you can also run "squid -z" without first deleting the cache files, and AFAIK that way it creates a new directory structure without wiping-out the old one, but i'm not sure if that's what happens as i've never done it...

Hi There,

I have the same problem on clearing out the cache.
Tried to enter "squid -k shutdown" command, but it returns an error message:
"squid: ERROR: No running copy"
Can anyone advise how to solve this?

I also tried to stop the Squid service, but it always came out FAILED

rgds,
Nassar
