cache dir :

rm -rf /usr/local/squid/cache
mkdir /usr/local/squid/cache

Then, let Squid 1.1 reloads it. Unless you pay your link by the byte,
trying to convert the cache is a waste of time.

squid.conf :

By hand. Note that most of the file is the same in 1.0 and 1.1 and Squid
will log the problems (old keywords like ttl_pattern). Just check the new
src/squid.conf to be sure you do not miss an useful novelty.

Yes. So what? You do not upgrade to a different cache format every day?
