Can I reconfigure the current squid cache ?

If so please tell which all of the lines needs to changed so that the prxy
server can made runnable without much hindrance to the users of the proxy

Asli if the contens would get trasshed if the number of directories and
its sub-directories have been changed ?

If at all I change according to my requirement what should i set ?

As of noew the /var partition shows up the disk utilization as 96%.

At the most the squid server may run for another few hours and I am in a
dilemma as to what should I do make cache squeeze and make the squid run

Kindly help!!!!!!!
