Using Squid on Ubuntu 10.04? Two notes

There are two things I’ve learned about Ubuntu 10.04 if you’re running Squid. Upstart doesn’t properly handle squid’s shutdown process properly. You need to issue squid -k shutdown *twice* if you want it to shutdown.

Two, the /etc/default/squid.conf SQUID_MAXFD is not listened to either, you must set this in /etc/squid/squid.conf instead.
