Yep! It works:

In "cache_cf.c" line 2030 (version 1.0.20):

sprintf(ForwardedBy, "Forwarded: by http://%s:%d/ (Squid/%s)",

Should read:

sprintf(ForwardedBy, "Via: by http://%s:%d/ (Squid/%s)",

And does not complain :)

Cheers and thanx,

There is a Perl script provided to convert your 1.0 cache to the
1.1 layout. Note however that it may run very slowly because it
must rename() all of the swap files. Also it only works if
you are keeping the same number of cache_dir's etc...

The script is scripts/
