To clean the cache see the Squid FAQ at  http://www.squid-cache.org/Doc/FAQ/FAQ-7.html#ss7.3

The logfiles are in /var/log/squid

(And shame on you for surfing to those sites...:>)

A day three month ago i erased those directorys, but i had to reinstall Squid for create again its directory structure. I think that for create again the directory structure i have to run squid -z. That's right.
