Following are the possibilities,

  1. You somehow messed up the lines (videocache specific) while copy pasting to squid.conf . Try removing the existing and pasting them again.
  2. You squid doesn't support url_rewrite_access which is highly unlikely.

Use "squid -k parse" command to see the syntax errors and try to correct those lines.

Thank You!

Please try asking in squid forums/mailing lists or forums for your distro.

Thank You!

Python path on your system may be different. You need to specify the exact path to python in the first line. You can detect path to python using 'which python' on command line.

Thank You!
