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 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


   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.
