       cachemgr.cgi - Squid HTTP proxy manager CGI web interface


       The cache manager ( cachemgr.cgi ) is a CGI utility for displaying sta‐
       tistics about the Squid HTTP proxy process as it runs. The  cache  man‐
       ager  is a convenient way to manage the cache and view statistics with‐
       out logging into the server.

       Configuration examples for many common web servers can be found in  the
       Squid FAQ wiki.

	      The  access  configuration file defining which Squid servers may
	      be managed via this cachemgr.cgi program. Each line specifies  a
	      server:port followed by an optional description

	      The server name may contain shell wildcard characters such as *,
	      [] etc.  A quick selection dropdown menu is  automatically  con‐
	      structed from the simple server names.

	      Specifying  :port is optional. If not specified then the default
	      proxy port is assumed. :* or :any matches any port on the target

       cachemgr.cgi  calls  the	 requested  server on the requested port using
       HTTP and returns a formatted version of the response. To avoid abuse it
       is  recommended	to configure your web server to restrict access to the
       cachemgr.cgi program.
