RE: [squid-users] Starting squid on boot - try #3

This is all I needed: I was missing using the 'su' command to shell out
and start squid as another user:

su -squid -c /usr/local/squid/bin/squid

Thanks for everyone's help...

Betreff: [squid-users] Starting squid on boot - try #3

Squid 2.4 will not start on boot for me (cause I'm stupid) since the
methods I have tried all attempt to start it as root (rc files, rc files
calling a script which changes the user.)

I cannot believe I am the only one having this problem - I read the FAQ,
and cache_effective_user doesn't do diddly for me - that is - it doesn't
change the 'root' user to that effective user...
