installing squid : service squid start --> error

I've installed squid via the applications --> add/remove software without any problems.

Now when I want to start the service, this is what I get :

[root@newposeidon ~]# service squid start
Starting squid: /etc/init.d/squid: line 62: 3069 Aborted $SQUID $SQUID_OPTS >> /var/log/squid/squid.out 2>&1
What info do you need to help me resolve this problem ??

Your distro would help, and have a look in your log files to see what they are telling you. Looks like it could be a permissions issue for /var/log/squid. What does "ls -ld /var/log/squid" give you

My Favourite...
