How to add a new Squid proxy account?

written by Admin

Posted on 2013-08-26


I have a Squid proxy running on a linux box and I want to add another user.


On Squid 2 type:
# htpasswd /path/to/passwd username

On Squid 3 type:
# htdigest /path/to/passwd proxy username

P.S. You will be asked for the password twice.
Use -c to create the file for the first user.
