You have squid-3.1, so only comment out the cache_dir lines and set
cache_mem to something large. null dir schema no longer exists.

  Remember that cache_mem still has an index to account for and the
usual active traffic buffering stays present. Also that reconfigure will
wipe the RAM cache to empty.


Please be using
   Current Stable Squid 2.7.STABLE9 or 3.1.14
