On linux server (RedHat 9.0) I have installed Squid V3.0 and Openssl
V0.9.7c for using this as HTTPS accelerator for our exchange server.

So far I have done follwoing:

1. Generated a RSA key with followinf command:
openssl genrsa -des3 -out privkey.pem 2048

2. Created a self-signed certificate-
openssl req -new -x509 -nodes -key privkey.pem -out cacert.pem -days 100

3. Squid.conf has -
https_port 443 cert=/usr/local/ssl/cacert.pem
key=/usr/local/ssl/privkey.pem

4. [root@Jupiter1 etc]# ../sbin/squid start (It does not give any error &
goes for PEM phrase)
Enter PEM pass phrase:

5. But squid daemon does not start. The /var/log/messages logs follwoing:
