My first questions would be: How did you install Squid on this machine?  What 
instructions did you follow?

That looks like a really unusual path to the squid.conf file to me, but then 
again I don't use a Mac, so maybe it's entirely reasonable.

However, a bit more information would probably be helpful:

 - which version of OSX are you installing on?

 - which version of Squid are you installing?

 - as asked before, how are you installing it?

 - how do you start / stop the Squid process?



Schrödinger's rule of data integrity: the condition of any backup is unknown 
until a restore is attempted.
