RE: FW: [squid-users] Squid Problem

I could not find a squidmgr_password in our squid.conf file. I tried the
command omitting the -W switch. It asked for a WWW password. I tried a
few passwords, including the root password. No joy. I also tried
entering the following line at the end of our squid.conf file:

        squidmgr_password squid

I restarted the squid service and tried again. Again, no joy.

How do I (and what is the syntax) to add a password to the squid.conf
file? After I make the changes, I need to restart the service /
computer, correct?

squidclient -h <host> -p <port> -U admin -W <squidmgr_password>

where you have to replace the brackets with the relevant values. The
squidmgr_password can be found in your squid.conf file.

Please keep the list in Cc, so that others may jump in and help if they
wish to.
