    hi all

    i have installed RHEL Release 5. when i configure the squid 2.6 on it as well as my requirement is that
    1- configure individual cache on /cache (which has isolated mount point)
    mean to say.
    # cache_dir /var/spool/squid 100 16 256
    cache_dir /cache 10000 16 256

    2- squid configure on port 80 (listening port 80 either 3128)

    but when i try to start the service of squid
    i got a error page
    cache_dir permission deny
    squid cant listen port 80

    note; i can change ownership of /cache directory from root to squid
    also crating swap directories by squid -z

    but again i can start the service of squid
    i got the same error

    plz help me for both cases.

    Ports <= 1024 are privileged, and you need root permissions to use them. Try another port (maybe 8080).
