This generates an encryted RSA key of 1024 bits. Squid can not load
encrypted RSA keys unless you start it with the -N option. Recommend to
decrypt the key unless you actually want to have to enter the encryption
key manually each time Squid is restarted.

This generates the certificate.

The error indiates that /users/webuser/squid3.0/conf/ssl.crt/webcache2.crt
does not exists, or maybe that Squid does not have permission to enter the

Maybe more information is given if you start Squid with the -X flag.
