Squid is a caching proxy server that is designed to help improve the load times of commonly accessed web pages. As a proxy server, Squid can also be used to filter web content using blacklists, MIME-type rules and a number of other methods. If you installed Squid on Linux or Windows, you can simply use the distribution's package manager for Linux or the Add and Remove Programs utility on Windows to remove the application. However, if you installed from the source code and compiled Squid yourself, there are different steps to uninstalling the package.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Launch a Terminal window. Use the "su" command and type the administrator password to become the root user.

  2. 2

    Use the "cd" command to navigate to the directory to which you unarchived the source. This should be the same directory you compiled from before.

  3. 3

    Type "make uninstall" and press the "Enter" key to uninstall Squid proxy.
