Generic Settings

Finally, you can use some tags for generic purposes, as listed in Table 25-5.

Table 25-5. Tags Used for Generic Administrative Purposes Tag Meaning cache_mgr Use this tag to specify the e-mail address of the administrator of the

Squid server. You can use this e-mail address to send messages to the administrator of the server if a serious error occurs.

cache_effective_user For its normal work, the Squid server needs permissions. Therefore, the server needs a user account to which these permissions can be granted. The proxy server will use the user account specified with this parameter. By default, the user account squid is used for this purpose. This is good, and you should leave it this way; for security reasons, make sure you never run Squid as root!
