Smile Squid with Quota

Hai,
I hope this will help you.

#####################################################
### SDQuota ###
### Steps to Configure Quota restriction in squid ###
#####################################################

1. Downlaod tarballs from the followin site.

http://sdquota.grumbler.org

( note: ==> copy to file to "/opt" folder.
)

2. Unpack the tarball where you want to install & configure SDQuota.

example :

location : /opt/sdquota

commands :

#mkdir /opt/sdquota

#tar -zxvf /opt/squidquota-0.13.sd.tgz -C /opt/sdquota

#chown -R squid:squid /opt/sdquota/squidquota


3. Edit the files in the directory to configure SDQuota.

example :

In Centos x86_64 follow the steps.

#cd /opt/sdquota/squidquota

**********************
#vim Makefile

chown -R :apache $(DB_DIR)

:wq

( note : ==> change the group name from "www" to "apache".
)

#make

**********************
#vim sdquota_auth.pl

$ncsa_auth = "/usr/lib64/squid/ncsa_auth"; # BASIC authentification agent
:wq

#htpasswd -c /etc/squid/passwd <testuser>

#/opt/sdquota/squidquota/sdsetquota <testuser> <size in bytes>

( note: ==> Initially set the value to valid byte no. other than 0.
==> If you want the user unlimited access use keyword "unlimited" in size.
)

#echo testuser <password> | /opt/sdquota/squidquota/sdquota_auth.pl /etc/squid/passwd

( note: ==> Above command should return "OK" if your authentication success.)

**********************
#vim sdq_redirector

my $redirecturl = 'http://proxy/quotaexceeded.html'; # URL to redirect

:wq

( note: ==> Change the http url.
==> Create the file "quotaexceeded.html" in httpd service root directory.
)


**********************
#vim procjnl.pl

/opt/sdquota/squidquota/1aday.pl `/usr/bin/dirname $userdir`

:wq

( note: ==> Change the default path to the current path of "1aday.pl".)

#cd /etc/cron.daily

#vim squidquota
/opt/sdquota/squidquota/procjnl.sh
:wq

( note: ==> The above crontab entry will reset quota details daily.
==> If you want to clear the quota mannually call the peral script.
)


**********************
#vim parseuser.pl

$squidlog = "/var/log/squid/access.log";

:wq

( note : ==> Change the default path to the current path of "access.log" file.)


4. Start the real time squid log file parser.

#tail -n1 -F /var/log/squid/access.log | /opt/sdquota/squidquota/rtparse.pl &

#vim /etc/rc.d/rc.local

tail -n1 -F /var/log/squid/access.log | /opt/sdquota/squidquota/rtparse.pl &

:wq

5.Configure squid to use the SDQuota.

**********************
#vim /etc/squid/squid.conf
auth_param basic program /opt/sdquota/squidquota/sdquota_auth.pl /etc/squid/passwd
acl authenticate proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow authenticate
redirect_program /opt/sdquota/squidquota/sdq_redirector
:wq

#service squid reload

The basicauthenticator helpers are crashing too rapidly

Hi,

Thanks for such a nice article. May be its too late to comment, but I got a problem.

When I start squid by using /etc/init.d/squid script i.e. "service squid start", it gives me an error " The basicauthenticator helpers are crashing too rapidly"

But if I start the squid using /usr/sbin/squid I don't get any error.

I am of the opinion that this has something to do with the permissions, but I did changed the permissions to "squid:squid" as per your instructions.

Any help would highly appreciated.

Regards,

MAKOLI
