Squid cache probelm

I've been working with Squid for 2 weeks now trying to get it up and running.  For a long time I couldn't get it to cache my webpages, but I think it is now.  How do I tell for sure?

I'm also trying to get the web interface to work.  The directions said to put cachemgr.cgi into the cgi-bin of apache.  I can access the page, but it won't let me log in...any ideas?

THanks

Take a look at the log files check out

/var/log/squid/access.log
/var/log/squid/cach.log

If its installed you can get some statistics from calimaris /var/log/squid/access.log

ok, i have it running i believe.  I'm running it so i can watch what is going on ...here is a few thigns its saying

2004/09/09 22:09:18| CACHEMGR: <unknown>@127.0.0.1 requesting 'menu'
2004/09/09 22:09:18| CACHEMGR: <unknown>@127.0.0.1 requesting 'menu'
2004/09/09 22:09:19| CACHEMGR: <unknown>@127.0.0.1 requesting 'menu'
2004/09/09 22:09:30| CACHEMGR: <unknown>@127.0.0.1 requesting 'objects'

That seems good.

What do I need to look for in the cache.log?

Looks like its running fine, have you set minimum object sizes? If so the html might be too small to cache.
