I am using squid3, on my Ubuntu 12.10 server, for some months now. I never had problems like that until 4 days ago. Since then I get this mail every day:

>Topic: Cron: test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts --report /etc/cron.daily )

>2014/01/03 06:25:04| ERROR: auth_param digest program /usr/lib/squid4/digest_pw_auth: (2) No such file or directory

Of course logrotate can't find /usr/lib/squid4/digest_pw_auth because it doesn't exist.

As I said, I’m using squid3, not squid4. Squid4 doesn't exist at all, the latest version from the website is 3.3. So the correct path would be /usr/lib/squid3/digest_pw_auth.

I looked inside logrotate, but I can't find anything related to this error message.

What has logrotate to do with the digest_pw_auth file anyway? What can I do to fix this?

Check your squid.conf, probably the wrong path is in there. –  Eric Carvalho Jan 3 at 17:38
