I think your configuration file is corrupted or something and parser is not able to read it successfully. Can you please try a clean install of videocache?

Thank You!

Hello guys best if use fedora 8 with squid 2.6, 2.7 and 3.0 are not easy to work may be not supported for beginners, professional users can take risk of time if they are free but if you all want easy to go and need to have a fast installation batter use above mentioned. Ok no problem if you guys have enough time as I have you can do experiments will be helpful for admin. Thanks.
