Clearing cache in Squid 2 on Debian

I'm trying to clear cache in an old version of Squid. Tried renaming the /usr/local/squid/cache directory and 'Squid -z' as well as rebooting. Neither prompts a clear or rebuild. The  '-z' parameter just seems to be ignored and squid seems to just start at the command line with errors usually seen in the logs. This version is too old for that I suspect. I'm initiating the command (./squid) from /usr/local/squid/sbin, the one place I found it. This system is almost retired so I've been getting away with just re-imaging to solve most problems. But that doesn't clear the unexpected 'page not found' the filters are causing this time.

I'm tempted to just disable caching instead, but the instructions I found for that probably don't apply either ;-)

Bin to all the usual Squid sites and Debian, not seeing much for this.

Any help appreciated,
