Hi,

I'm using the same script for samba passwords . For squid password you need to enable it with ./configure command and then compile it.

--enable-squidpasswd=squidpasswd   Absolute path to Squid PASSWORD FILE
                                   Default: /etc/squid/passwd

basicaly everithyng is in README file just have a look.

EXAMPLE TAKEN FROM REDME FILE:

Examples:

./configure --enable-cgidir=/var/www/cgi-bin --enable-language=Portuguese
--enable-smbpasswd=/usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
--enable-squidpasswd=/etc/squid/passwd --enable-logo=opentech.jpg


Absolutes path can be different in your system somake sure thet is correct.

I Configured the squid passwd .But i can't change the passwd without  having system user id and passwd .I want to disable the system passwd changing.I also configure the changepassword by using command ./configure --disable systempasswd.Is there any other command to disable the system passwd.I need to change only the squid password.

This the message i getting while changing passwd.

SYSTEM password changed.
SQUID password changed

Hi,

unfortunately there is no option to disable system password update. But if you need to change just squid password here is one alternative:
http://sarg.sourceforge.net/
chpasswd        Allow your Squid or Web users to change their passwords using the browser.

this is all I can help you I think.

./lubo
