The default document root for Apache on Fedora is /var/www/html

This is probably where your index.html that shows 'IT works' is appearing.

/var/spool/squid is simply the directory that squid uses for buffering its cache.
It really isn't the actual content you would edit.

So, you shouldn't want to access it directly via a web server as you are describing.
Activate squid to do the caching, and store your files on /var/www/html
(Or somewhere else if you somehow have set the operating directory to something else.)

Look in /etc/httpd/httpd.conf
Or in /etc/init.d/httpd
To see its configuration, if it has somehow changed.

It sounds like apache is doing a very good job, it probably also has something to do with selinux if it's enabled as well.

Perhaps reading up on squid may help you;
