Reverse Proxy with squid and multiple virtual host

This post is to document down the detail that I did to configure a squid as reverse proxy and also enable LDAP authentication . Not only that , I need the squid reverse proxy able to handle virtual host as well. I did a search at google and didn't find any exact match for my requirement so I did one for my self. I have 3 physical web server but I only have one public ip. Here is my requirement. 1. All three web server have to listen at port 80 and must be able to access from internet. 2. Some web site need authentication and some web site don't need authentication. 3. One of the web server has two virtual host and these two virtual host must be accessible from internet. After combine knowledge from multiple page , these are the lines that I added into the squid.conf . auth_param basic program /usr/lib64/squid/squid_ldap_auth -b "dc=example,dc=com" -f "uid=%s" -h auth_param basic children 30 auth_param basic realm Please authenticate yourself
