Dropbox 12 – Dropbox Server (HTTP Proxy / Squid)

Squid is one of the most highly configurable software packages available, but we’re going to use the absolutely simplest deployment possible.

Install squid3

apt-get install squid3

Backup the original 7,930 line Squid configuration file (not an exaggeration).

mv /etc/squid/squid.conf /etc/squid/squid.conf.old

Create a new Squid configuration file with everything we need.

echo -e "http_port\nhttp_access allow all" > /etc/squid/squid.conf

Verify that Squid starts.

service squid start

Enable the service to start at boot.

systemctl enable squid
