This paper discussed the configuration of squid proxy server and how to improve the performance of the squid proxy server by using the various methods and techniques. As internet users, N/W administrators know that the Squid[1] is a web caching proxy server for the supporting HTTPS, HTTP, File Transfer Protocols, and many more. It saves the bandwidth and advance the response times by caching and repeatedly using frequently-requested web sites. Squid proxy server has wide-ranging access controls and it delivers squid proxy server as great server accelerator. It runs on Linux and Windows platforms and is licensed under the GNU GPL[1] . So the improving of the performance squid proxy server is essential. This paper introduced two ideas that if use the SCSI HDD(for improving the cache management system) and block the media streaming that is frequently used by various users because media streaming takes lot of bandwidth if administrator blocks unwanted media streaming that also improves the performance of the squid proxy and it accelerated the content delivery.
