squid dies

RedHat7.1  kernel 2.4.5

Squid was working OK till I rebooted and it did not restart.

/etc/init.d/squid start     (results with a squid -D PID that dies shortly) but squid never starts as user squid.

Tried to remove rpm but cannot.

Don't know what to do unless I download tarball and compile it myself and try that.

Suggestions welcome.

Try deleting the cache directory and recreate it (where squid stores its cache).

Good Luck,

Not the answer, but you did respond. I was having a DNS problem.

try running squid manually from the command line.  This should give you some insight as to why it is dying.  You can also check /var/log/messages for clues.  Let us know what you find.
