Thank you, but seems not. /var/run is owned by root and should not be
changed due to system defaults. And this worked with the former
But I tried something similar to your idea: I created /var/run/squid/
owned by the user, the squid-cache runs with. This directory I also
placed in squid.conf and in my initscript.
If squid starts, I see the squid.pid generated with owner root in this
directory. But when I do something like "squid -k check" I get the same
error as before (squid: ERROR: No running copy).
Something must have been changed in the way "pid_filename" is used in
