       cachemgr.cgi - Squid HTTP proxy manager CGI web interface




       The  cache  manager  ( cachemgr.cgi ) is a CGI utility for displaying statistics about the
       Squid HTTP proxy process as it runs. The cache manager is a convenient way to  manage  the
       cache and view statistics without logging into the server.


       Configuration  examples  for  many  common web servers can be found in the Squid FAQ wiki.

              The access configuration file defining which Squid servers may be managed via  this
              cachemgr.cgi  program.  Each  line  specifies a server:port followed by an optional

              The server name may contain shell wildcard characters such as *, [] etc.   A  quick
              selection dropdown menu is automatically constructed from the simple server names.

              Specifying  :port  is  optional.  If  not  specified then the default proxy port is
              assumed. :* or :any matches any port on the target server.


       cachemgr.cgi calls the requested server on the requested port using  HTTP  and  returns  a
       formatted  version of the response. To avoid abuse it is recommended to configure your web
       server to restrict access to the cachemgr.cgi program.
