Subject [users@httpd] using cache in reverse proxy mode
Date Sat, 22 Oct 2005 19:18:02 GMT

I'm using apache (2.0.54) as a frontend server to proxy content from application servers,

I'd like to enable caching in order to decrease the load of the backend servers,

I tried to add CacheEnable directive:

ProxyPass        /content1 http://server:8080/content1
ProxyPassReverse /content1 http://server:8080/content1
CacheEnable mem  /content1
#CacheEnable disk /content1

but I still see queries going to the application servers,
if disk cache is used nothing is stored into the CacheRoot folder,
i.e. ProxyPass content is somehow ignored .. does it really work in ver 2.0.x
as it is written in the mod_cache doc page?

Does anyone use caching in reverse proxy configuration, could you send me some examples

Thank you
