Description Karel Srot 2013-09-25 08:41:14 EDT
Description of problem:

When using the default /etc/httpd/conf.d/squid.conf config file shipped with squid the access to a http://localhost/Squid/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi is forbidden.

To make it work I had to replace "allow from localhost.localdomain" with "allow from localhost".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install httpd
2. install squid
3. start httpd and squid
4. curl http://localhost/Squid/cgi-bin/cachemgr.cgi

Actual results:
access forbidden

Expected results:
cachemgr.cgi is accessible
