How to install and configure Tinyproxy on Ubuntu 14.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install and configure Tinyproxy on an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS. Tinyproxy is a small and fast HTTP/HTTPS proxy server and it is very easy to install and use. It is an ideal solution when a HTTP/HTTPS proxy is required, but but resources for a larger proxy such as Squid are unavailable. There are a number of reasons why a HTTP/HTTPS proxy is useful, but the main one is to access the Internet using a different IP address. Some of the key features of Tinyproxy include: Anonymous mode, Access control, Small footprint, Proxy chaining, Remote monitoring, HTTPS support and Small footprint.
This guide should work on other Linux VPS systems as well but was tested and written for an Ubuntu 14.04 VPS.
