Cant find Cache Directory - Squid Install
I was trying to install Squid on my PC, and I followed the tutorial at: http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/Users-Guide/
I downloaded "squid-2.5.STABLE6.tar.gz". Following the tutorial, I created the directories " /usr/local/squid/src" and downloaded the file there. I untarred it, and a directory "squid-2.5.STABLE6" was created with many files inside.
I cd'd into the DIR and using the commands "./configure", "make", "make install" the app was installed.
I observed that other DIRs "bin, etc, libexec, man, sbin, share, src and var" had been created at "/usr/local/squid" together with the "src" i created before.
finally getting to this page of the tutoria "http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/Users-Guide/initial/dirs.html", it says
Squid normally creates a few directories. They are normally as follows:
/src (we created this earlier)
another thing is that the "logs" directory is created under a "var" directory.
pls, are these observations an error during the installation....I wasnt prompted for any errors though....how do I locate the "cache" DIR if it was automatically placed somewhere else?

There is a squid command to initialise the cache, setting the amound of disk space it allocates, and where it puts it. Unfortunately, I dont run squid on its own any more, I use the version that comes with Smoothwall (configured by web interface), and I cant remember how I did it all those years ago.
Take a look through the squid man pages; it should be pretty easy to find.
