Re: Squid not starting

try the RunCache command... and have a look in your /usr/local/squid/
dir for a file called "squid.out" and have a look at the error messages
generated.... it contains general errors that squid outputs at
startup/shutdown etc...

also make sure you dont forget the ampersand (&) at the end of the line in
rc.local... otherwise you get problems...

here is my /etc/rc.squid - which gets called from rc.local:
        echo "starting squid...."
        /usr/local/squid/bin/RunCache &
        tail -f /usr/local/squid/logs/access.log > /dev/tty11 &
basically tells you at startup that squid is starting..
starts squid
and prints the access.log to tty11... great for debugging
