Squid with MySQL – authentication

Squid with MySQL – authentication

Squid is the widly used proxy server. We are using squid as proxy cahcing server with authnetication with PAM.. Now we have replace this squid with PAM authentication with squid with MySQL.

Installation and configuration –

* Download squid_mysql plugin from here…

1] go to directory where you have extracted squid_mysql plugin..

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun# cd mysql_auth-0.8
root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8#

2] Please change the src/mysql_auth.conf as shown below then run make command

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# make
gcc -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib -c -o src/mysql_auth.o src/mysql_auth.c
gcc -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib -c -o src/confparser.o src/confparser.c
gcc -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib -c -o src/mypasswd.o src/mypasswd.c
gcc -o mysql_auth src/mysql_auth.c src/confparser.c -lmysqlclient -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib
gcc -o mypasswd src/mypasswd.c src/confparser.c -lmysqlclient -I/usr/include -L/usr/lib
root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8#

3] Make sure that squid user ie proxy and group shadow is exist.. if they are not exist then check your squid
configuration and set proper permission

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# install -o proxy -g shadow -m 755 mysql_auth /usr/lib/squid/mysql_auth

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# install -o root -g root -m 700 mypasswd /usr/local/bin/squid-passwd

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# make -p /usr/local/squid/etc/
root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8#

root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# install -o proxy -g root -m 600 src/mysql_auth.conf /usr/local/squid/etc/mysql_auth.conf
root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8# install -o proxy -g root -m 600 src/mysql_auth.conf /usr/local/squid/etc/mysql_auth.conf.default
root@indiangnu.org:/home/arun/mysql_auth-0.8#

4] please update squid.conf file and add this line to use authentication

###########################################
#This is used for MySQL authentication

#For squid with PAM authentication

* Add ACL in squid file at proper location

acl password proxy_auth REQUIRED
acl acl_name proxy_auth “/etc/proxy/user.list”
acl allow_sites dstdom_regex -i “/etc/proxy/allow.sites”
acl block_sites dstdom_regex -i “/etc/proxy/block.sites”

* add rule for access/privleges
http_access allow allow_sites
http_access deny block_sites !acl_name

    help me! please…

  2. Hi, you edit Makefile

    # Before

    CFLAGS = -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib

    $(INSTALL) -o nobody -g nogroup -m 755 mysql_auth /usr/local/squid/libexec/mysql_auth
    $(INSTALL) -o nobody -g nogroup -m 700 mypasswd /usr/local/bin/mypasswd
    $(INSTALL) -o nobody -g nogroup -m 600 $(CONF) /usr/local/etc/squid/mysql_auth.conf
    $(INSTALL) -o nobody -g nogroup -m 600 $(CONF) /usr/local/etc/squid/mysql_auth.conf.default

    # After

    CFLAGS = -I/usr/local/include -L/usr/local/lib/mysql
    install:
    $(INSTALL) -o root -g wheel -m 755 mysql_auth /usr/local/libexec/squid/mysql_auth
    $(INSTALL) -o root -g wheel -m 700 mypasswd /usr/local/bin/mypasswd
    $(INSTALL) -o root -g wheel -m 600 $(CONF) /usr/local/etc/squid/mysql_auth.conf
    $(INSTALL) -o root -g wheel -m 600 $(CONF) /usr/local/etc/squid/mysql_auth.conf.default

    Edit define.h

    # Before

    #define CONFIG_FILE “/usr/local/squid/etc/mysql_auth.conf”

    # After

    #define CONFIG_FILE “/usr/local/etc/mysql_auth.conf”

  3. Thanks for the tutorial.

    Permits multiple logins with same username/password at the same time(simultaneous use). How can I rectify this problem?
