These were built with support for ldap auth but the name of the binary was kept as it was by squid.
The package of squid from my repository was split into the "main" binary and "helpers".
This allows whoever that want's to install squid without resulting or being required to install all sort of other un-needed dependencies that is being caused by external helpers.
So first if you haven't installed the "squid-helpers" package install it from the repo.
Then if you are still missing the file then it might be because of it has another name then expected by the admin.
Maybe in the past the name was specific but it should be something else.
Here is the list of helpers in the squid-helpers latest rpm:
eliezer at www: /tmp/helpers$  rpm2cpio /mnt/squid-repos/centos/7/x86_64/squid-helpers-3.5.23-1.el7.centos.x86_64.rpm |cpio -idmv
1553 blocks

And from that I assume that the file you seek is:
And if you want you can use a tiny symbolic link to keep the same name and location in your squid.conf using:
# ln -s /usr/lib64/squid/basic_ldap_auth /usr/lib64/squid/squid_ldap_auth

Let me know if something is missing( I have yet to force the repository version update but will do so in the next hours),

We are testing squid 3.5 from:


But we got some issue, our server requieres auth to a local LDAP server.

But looks like it was build without this module.

Can some one confirm this?
