I've installed and configured for squid for a  basic proxying and cahing and its working fine.

I  want to use the WWW interface to the Cache Manager, I just copied the cachemgr.cgi script to the approprate location and http://**.**.**.**/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi can let me access the page,but the problem is I am not able to logon.Does it have a default name and password?....any ideas pls?

Thanks in advance

    I am using Centos 4.
    It works fine for me, i just need to login using root.

    Cache host: localhost
    Cache port: 3128
    Managername: root
    Password: password

    Btw, if you are trying to generate graphs, usages, blablabla.
    Why not try Webalizer?
    I love webalizer, it's builtin with RedHat/Fedora, it's easy to configure, and it's nice.
    More squid log analyser can be found at

    Just let me know if you need help on webalizer.

    good luck!!!

    Hi kiitii,
    Please look at cachemgr_passwd in your /etc/squid/squid.conf file. Also look at http_access allow manager in that file too.

    Try to change these 2 lines:-

    cache_mgr    cacheadmin
    cachemgr_passwd    my-secret-pass    all

    Good luck

    When you login,

    Cache host: localhost
    Cache port: 3128
    Managername: cacheadmin
    Password:  my-secret-pass
