Cachemgr.cgi not responding :-(

  • Hi!

    I'm not able to use the cachemgr.cgi for squid.
    First I have set a link under /usr/local/www -> cachemgr.cgi -> /usr/local/libexec/squid/cachemgr.cgi
    and I was able to call the cachemgr logon screen via my web browser (http://pfsense/cachemgr.cgi).

    But after 60 seconds I received the following timeout:```

    Cache Manager Error

    connect: (60) Operation timed out
    Generated Mon, 25 Aug 2008 14:10:33 GMT, by cachemgr.cgi/

    nothing more!
    Is there any problem with lighttpd and cgi-scripts?

  • Maybe squid not allowed cache mgr access?

  • my squid.conf includes the following statements:

    acl manager proto cache_object
    http_access allow manager localhost
    http_access deny manager
    # Always allow localhost connections
    http_access allow localhost

    anything missing?

  • do you have the acl cachemgr_passwd <password>all</password> defined ?
    and configured the squidmgr.conf ?

  • Imho is the  'acl cachemgr_passwd <password>all' only needed for some special operations like 'reconfigure' s.o.

    The squidmgr.conf has the default 'localhost:3128'.
    Maybe lighttpd can only respond on port 80 - should I add  port 3128 too?</password>
