I'm not familiar with the Ubuntu install but the default cache_dir  
path is usually something like:


But the squid.conf file defines where is the cache so unless you have  
an existing cache you want to retain, you can put it wherever you like  
(just remember to run "squid -z" to generate the cache structure).

Take a look at the heavily documented example config file at "/path/to/ 
squid-build/etc/squid.conf.default" for more options available for  
cache_dir.  The makeconfig doesn't give you handles for all the  
options but you can manually edit the generated config if you like.
