Hi Guys

I am trying to get basic authentication (ncsa_auth) working on opensuse 12.1, I do already have this working on other distros without an issue but for some reason, everytime I add in all the auth_param basic program details then create acl and REQUIRED and allow acl etc it just crashes squid.
Also I have noticed I can only find ncsa_auth in "/usr/sbin/ncsa_auth" most guides I have found tell you it should be in "/usr/lib/squid/ncsa_auth" but all I have there is "cachemgr.cgi"

Can anyone help me I have been trying to sort it all afternoon?

What is the error entry in the log when squid crases?
Try running squid in debug mode in an effort to see what is going on.
Have setup squid on other platforms but not on the one you ar using.
Where is the user account to be used defined?

Post the entry you have in squid

I.e. do you include the file where the users and passwords are set?
