Squid problem


I have just installed CentOS 4.4 in textual mode. Every service I have installed (web, mail, ftp) works, but squid doesn't work.
When I type "service squid status" the system gives me "/etc/init.d/squid: line 121: 3699 Aborted $SQUID -k check".

Is anybody know what could be the problem?

Hi, gubak.
When I type "service squid status" the system gives me "/etc/init.d/squid: line 121: 3699 Aborted $SQUID -k check".
Known problem related to not having a "squid" named group and/or user. If creating such user and group doesn't help you, tell us.
