you need to edit the configuration file.

also squid needs a user so it can run as that user.

once you configure your squid.conf, you need to create the cache directory with "squid -z" (without quotes) and then check the directory was created under the user you specified on the squid.conf file. if not, do a chown -R username /directory/of/squid/cache

and then you can start squid with it's command. if you configured standard from sources, it should be on /usr/local/squid/sbin/squid

test it and give some feedback if you need.

Regards

You probably dont have a valid domainname - look at the visiblehost option in squid.conf

is this a new installation or you have previous installation of squid?

are your done configuring  your squid.conf? try to check your configuration
squid -k parse to check if your squid.conf has no error.
