Squid and permissions[solved]

I've had squid running happily before - but now it refuses to start (after an upgrade via pacman).

I believe the issue is to do with permissions.  Do I need a user called 'squid'? If so what groups do I need and does root need to be in any other groups in order to run squid as a daemon?

Try using your old squid config file... From what version did you upgrade?

Re: Squid and permissions[solved]

I did use my old squid config file - the first thing I did was replace the new one with the old.  squid -k parse produces no problems...

I'm not certain exactly which version I had but it was whichever was the last version in pacman before the current one...

The final error message is "Failed to open swap log"
