How do I install and configure SQUID !!

- http proxy

- ftp proxy

whats the distribution of linux that you are using, because you might be able to simply install from RPM's or Deb's :)



yum install squid


Debian (if you have apt on fedora you can do this too :))

apt-get install squid



On Linux SlackeWare 10.1



First of all please get yourself a book of linux basics, then get squid, configure it and install it.

You just need to read the squid.conf file thats has ~3400 lines.


Isn't that hard

Don't normally like sending away from the forum but I'm not a slackware user, so hopefully you can try these and come back with any problems that you find along the way.


First you might want to install swaret, which is a package handling utility (can handle upgrade/install/remove with source or binary installs too). So try this:


# wget
# mv swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz.tar swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz
# installpkg swaret-1.6.2-noarch-1.tgz
# swaret --set VERSION=10.1
# swaret --update
# swaret --upgrade
# swaret --install squid


Hope this is right (maybe one of the slackhead's can confirm it for me :))


Also these might help:

If you want to install as per usual with slack, you can try searching here to find the squid package to be installed:




Like I said, any issues come back :)
