Appendix A. Config File Reference

This appendix contains descriptions and examples for every squid.conf directive. I present them here in the same order they appear in the default squid.conf. That means certain related directives are grouped together, and some recently added directives are at the end. You may want to use the book’s index to locate a particular directive by name.

In the following sections, the descriptive text is followed by a table that contains the directive’s syntax, a default value, an example, and related directives.
