Thanks for replying. Since I do not have caching peers, I deleted these
tags from the config file and squid starts fine now. There are other config
errors which can be tweaked as I go along.

How does Squid keep track of the files being cached? How do we know if the cached files have
changed on the original server?

Thank you once again.
