Start the Squid web proxy as a service at start up
Authored by: lsloan on Jul 20, '04 12:11:52AM
I changed the StartupParameters.plist similarly, too:

  Description    = "Squid proxy service";
  Provides       = ("Squid");
  Requires       = ("Network", "Resolver");
  Uses           = ("Network");
  OrderPreferece = "none";
  Messages =
    start = "Starting Squid proxy service";
    stop  = "Stopping Squid proxy service";
I also changed Resources/English.lproj/Localizable.strings, though it may not have been necessary:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist SYSTEM "file://localhost/System/Library/DTDs/PropertyList.dtd">
<plist version="0.9">
        <key>Starting Squid proxy service</key>
        <string>Starting Squid proxy service</string>
And I changed the Squid script to start squid with the "-s" (syslog) option and without the "-f" (configuration filename) option. My changes are available at
