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 sta-
       tistics about the Squid HTTP proxy process as it runs. The  cache  man-
       ager  is a convenient way to manage the cache and view statistics with-
       out 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  con-
              structed 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.
