        I believe the problems is permissions on the directories
associated with squid. Does anything get written to the log files?? Are
the directories get created in the cace directory??

        Try changing the ownership of all the directories and files that
squid uses, to the user specified in cache_effective_user. For example,
if cache effective user is set to: squid squidgrp

        Try the following: chown -R squid.squidgrp /usr/local/squid

        This assumes that squid has been installed in /usr/local/squid
