I have the following problem:
i have a squid proxy server on linux debian sarge without authentication.
they want authentication. No problem. I can use a password file
Only, they want a web-based way to admin the password file.
I have webmin/usermin installed, so i thinked to use them.
only... i use shadow password, that is DES encrypted, whereas
basic squid auth uses ncsa.
My question is:
- is there a web-based administration tool to admin ncsa password file?
(i already tried usermin-htaccess module, but it can't modify the password file)
- is there a way to use the shadow password file so that
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth /etc/squid/passwd
becomes something like
auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid/<some program> /etc/shadow
