NAME

       cachemgr.cgi - Squid HTTP proxy manager CGI web interface

SYNOPSIS

       http://your.server/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi

DESCRIPTION

       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

       Configuration examples for many common web servers can be found in  the
       Squid FAQ wiki.  http://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq

       ./cachemgr.conf
       /etc/squid/cachemgr.conf
              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 description

              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.

SECURITY

       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.
