Our office is running a Windows 2003 Server with Squid NT 2.6 as as web proxy, the cache directory has now reached 7Gb and find that the internet connection is a bit unstable. How does one clear / flush the cache on Squid 2.6. I have tried to manually delete the contents of the cache directory, but it stopped working alltogether so had to restore them for now. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

Go to your cache directory and clean the content of access.log, but be careful,
do not delete this file, only the content.

Stop the Squid, manually remove the contents of the cache directory, then run squid -z in order to re-create directory structure, then run squid again.

You may also want to tune cache_dir config parameter to decrease cache size.
