firstly start out with the default configuration. the only things you
probably want to change initially are the:
parameters to reflect the resources you want it to use. And you
probably want to check the acls are good for what you need.
cache_mem to reflect how much RAM you want squid to use. (NB: it will
use more memory in total than cache_mem, so set it to maybe 60 or 70%
of how much RAM you want squid to actually use. You can fine-tune
cache_dir to reflect how much disk space to use for caching.
maximum_object_size - bump this up if you want squid to cache big
things, eg downloads. (eg i have it set to 50MB).
that's it really. a working squid config. Apart from acls you dont
really /need/ to do much more.
