Squid 2.6STABLE21 squid executable does not exist

i have a problem with my Squid Proxy.
squid cant find the executable.

i have a Archlinux server with squid installed and it worked fine till i updated the squid from version 2.6 to 2.7 witch is not compatible with webmin! zo i removed squid and compiled 2.6 from scratch.


        % ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/squid
        % make all
        % make install

every thing seems to be ok but now the server is complaining that squid cannot be found in /usr/sbin/


The Squid executable /usr/sbin/squid does not exist. If you have Squid installed, adjust your module configuration to use the correct path.
i reinstalled it for 3thimes but it doesn't matter

maybe some of you know where i can start to solve this problem :(

Thanx in advance

The squid executable is located in: /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid
I guess you need to edit the squid startup script to reflect the new path

ow you are good =]
thanx for your time.

know i have the visible_hostname problem that appears al lot when you search the forum :-P
but non of the topics i read have a solution

a little part of squid.conf

cache_effective_user cache_effective_user
cache_effective_group cache_effective_user
visible_hostname LiSe2

the host name of the server is LiSe2

[root@lise2 squid]# /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid
FATAL: Could not determine fully qualified hostname.  Please set 'visible_hostname'

sorry i found it!
i was searching for the wrong .conf :P
the right one is in /usr/local/squid/etc/squid.conf
