The squid homepage is at http://www.squid-cache.org/ Squid was downloaded from that site with HTTP. **** Configuration File **** The upstream squid.conf contains ACLs so that squid denies all requests by default, forcing you to configure it first. The Debian package allows access from 'localhost'. To use it you need to configure your browser to use proxyserver 'localhost', port 3128. Please see /usr/share/doc/squid/example/squid.conf for documentation on the configuration file. You can increase the maximum number of filedescriptors that squid uses through /etc/default/squid. See the README.morefds file. You can also run squid with a userid different from root from the beginning (no just dropping root privileges after running). To do so add a CHUID=user line in /etc/default/squid where 'user' is the user you want squid to run as. Please adjust permission accordingly, especially for squid.conf that is installed as root with permission set to 0600. The default /etc/squid/squid.conf file turns off icmp, htcp and snmp. Note that the syntax of the command line arguments to auth_ldap changed in 2.4.2 (relative to 2.3.4-2 to 2.4.1-6). See README.ldap_auth **** Patches applied and build-time options **** A number of patches were applied using directly to the TurnKey tklbam-squid repo. A lot of them are Debian specific, you will not find them outside of Debian (yet). cf.data.debian.patch Debian specific squid.conf patches dfl-error-dir.patch Default error dir is under /usr/share/squid for Debian no_append_domain_localhost.patch Don't apply "append_domain" setting to "localhost" in unqualified URLs. smb_auth.patch Read password with '-r' so backslashes work syslog.patch Log to daemon.log instead of local4.log unlinkd.patch Compile in unlinkd support even with async io manpages.patch Fixed a wrong reference to the config file Squid was compiled with the following options: config.status: ./configure \ --prefix=/usr \ --exec_prefix=/usr \ --bindir=/usr/sbin --sbindir=/usr/sbin \ --libexecdir=/usr/lib/squid \ --sysconfdir=/etc/squid \ --localstatedir=/var/spool/squid \ --datadir=/usr/share/squid \ --enable-linux-netfilter  --enable-storeio=ufs,aufs,diskd,null \  --enable-arp-acl \  --enable-removal-policies=lru,heap \ --enable-snmp \ --enable-delay-pools \ --enable-htcp \ --enable-poll \ --enable-cache-digests \ --enable-underscores \ --enable-referer-log \ --enable-useragent-log \ --enable-auth="basic,digest,ntlm" \ --enable-carp \ --enable-large-files \ $(arch)-debian-$(system) Where $(arch) is i386 or alpha or sparc etc and $(system) is linux or hurd.  For the Hurd squid is compiled without netfilter, arp-acl, aufs and pthread support Furthermore the following flags were passed to the squid Makefile to customize some locations: bindir = /usr/sbin libexecdir = /usr/lib/squid sysconfdir = /etc/squid logdir = /var/log/squid docdir = /usr/share/doc/squid datadir = /usr/share/squid DEFAULTS = logdir=$(logdir) \ DEFAULT_CACHE_LOG=$(logdir)/cache.log \ DEFAULT_ACCESS_LOG=$(logdir)/access.log \ DEFAULT_STORE_LOG=$(logdir)/store.log \ DEFAULT_PID_FILE=/var/run/squid.pid \ DEFAULT_SWAP_DIR=/var/spool/squid \ DEFAULT_ICON_DIR=$(datadir)/icons \ DEFAULT_ERROR_DIR=$(datadir)/errors/English \ DEFAULT_MIME_TABLE=$(datadir)/mime.conf \ DEFAULT_MIB_PATH=$(datadir)/mib.txt So squid uses the following paths: - configfile: /etc/squid/squid.conf - binary: /usr/sbin/squid - private dir: /usr/share/squid (mime.conf, error messages, modules) - logfiles: /var/log/squid - cache: /var/spool/squid **** TroubleShooting **** If you are in doubt as to why squid doesn't cache a certain object or webpage, you can try the "cacheability service" at http://www.ircache.net/cgi-bin/cacheability.py . It will check an URL for you and tell you if it is or isn't cachable and why. -- Luigi Gangitano <email@example.com>, Mon, 04 Aug 2004 18:08:00 +0200
