Do we need to create the log and db directories by ourselves

Hi all,

I am having trouble understanding the configuration steps at

says on the site:
logdir defines the diretory for the standard logfiles "squidGuard.error" and "squidGuard.log", and the base for relative logfilenames in log rules. The default is "/usr/local/squidGuard/logs" but another default can be set at compile time.
dbhome defines the base for relative list filenames. The default is "/usr/local/squidGuard/db" but another default can be set at compile time.

Although the defaults can be used silently it is recommended to declare these explicitly for clarity. For instance:

logdir /usr/local/squidGuard/logs
dbhome /usr/local/squidGuard/db

in my computer, there is no /usr/local/squidGuard/logs directory or the db directory.
There is only /var/log/squidguard, is that the same?

Or do we have to create the directory ourselves throug mkdir?

thanks in advance!
