  7.3. I want to restart Squid with a clean cache

  Note: The information here is current for version 2.2.

  First of all, you must stop Squid of course. You can use the command:

          % squid -k shutdown

  The fastest way to restart with an entirely clean cache is to over
  write the swap.state files for each cache_dir in your config file.
  Note, you can not just remove the swap.state file, or truncate it to
  zero size. Instead, you should put just one byte of garbage there.
  For example:

          % echo "" > /cache1/swap.state

  Repeat that for every cache_dir, then restart Squid. Be sure to leave
  the swap.state file with the same owner and permissions that it had

  Another way, which takes longer, is to have squid recreate all the
  cache_dir directories. But first you must move the existing
  directories out of the way. For example, you can try this:

          % cd /cache1
          % mkdir JUNK
          % mv ?? swap.state* JUNK
          % rm -rf JUNK &

  Repeat this for your other cache_dir's, then tell Squid to create new
          % squid -z
