Re: Deleting cache

Two ways you can do this:

The first way:
    Stop squid
    rm -rf <your cache directory>
    change cache_swap to a lower number.
    run 'squid -z' to build the cache dirs again.
    start squid up again.

The second way
    change cache_swap to a lower number.
    send a SIGHUP to squid.
    squid will trim back to the disk-usage you specify.

To my way of thinking number two is easer, since it sounds like you have to
change the value of cache_swap regardless.

PS: Read the manual, the FAQ, and the release notes. All this information is
there. You can find them through links at

Did you read the documentation AND the FAQ?
If not, I'll probably still answer your question, but my patience will
be limited, and you take the risk of sarcasm and ridicule.
