    Squid Installation Problem


    Hello all, recently upon installing Squid I am pretty sure the install went fine until i get this whenever i try to do something:

    FATAL: Unable to open configuration file: /etc/squid/squid.conf: (13) Permission denied
    Squid Cache (Version 2.7.STABLE9): Terminated abnormally.
    CPU Usage: 0.000 seconds = 0.000 user + 0.000 sys
    Maximum Resident Size: 4336 KB
    Page faults with physical i/o: 0

    You should check that the file permissions of the /etc/squid/squid.conf are right

    Also, that file must be owned by the squid user, it usually is something like "proxy" or "squid"

    -rw-rw-r-- 1 proxy proxy 169042 2008-07-16 12:02 squid.conf
