Squid 3 Auth Basic not working on Ubuntu 13.04 x64?

June 24, 2013 1.6k views
Hello there! I have a really annoying problem since i set up a new droplet on Ubuntu 13.04 x64. When i run Squid3 without any authentication it's working perfectly fine. But as soon as i add the authentication with auth_basic it's getting hard'n'heavy. I specified a squid_users file and my browser is prompting me to enter my credentials. When i enter them the user prompt is displaying again..and again...and again.. and again..... For example Ubuntu 12.10 the same config works fine. does anyone have the same problem or maybe a solution for it? greetings from cold austria!

It could be a config related issue in an updated version of Squid that is available in the 13.04 repos but isn't available in the 12.10 repos.

Try looking in the manual/google it as I've never used Squid.
