Configuring Squid as web proxy
This is my first posting so please bear with me.
Trying to setup a web proxy inside existing firewall.
Installed Squid 2.6STABLE14, configured to test, and thought I was on my way.
Made some changes to squid.conf and tried to restart.
Now it is grabbing Squid 2.4STABLE7 from somewhere, and I have more errors than before. I'm guessing that possible versions changes may be causing my errors, but I don't know where this version came from. I did not install it previously and I'm the only one working on Squid.

I'm running REDHAT 8.0 2.4ver18-14 if that helps. Is Squid installed by default in REDHAT?

I know I will have alot more questions, but I have to address this first.

Thanks in advance for any help,

it is "grabbing" squid 2.4?? what does that mean?? if you have errors, please don't just tell us they exist, show us what they are, along with your squid.conf file.

Configuring Squid as web proxy
My goal is to have the clients connect to the Squid system for web request.
Squid sends the request thru the firewall.
Would like to have Squid allow access to a list of limited sites. etc.courthouse, auditor
The version of Squid that I installed is 2.6STABLE14 but 2.4STABLE7 runs instead.
I don't know if my errors are because the squid.conf is wrong or it's confused with version.
Both is my guess.

This is the output for my squid.conf file.

I'm just trying to get it started for testing. No browser settings or anything have been configured.
Also, would like to set it up without cache, if possible.
Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.
I'm sinking here.
