Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache Server as cache proxy
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2009 11:50:46 GMT
Though mod_cache + mod_proxy is well, but I'd suggest you use Squid
instead, and use mod_expire to set an expire time for objects.

heavy traffic. What we have to do is to proxy some requests that reply with an XML (RSS) and
we also need to cache some request for media resources (JPG, PDF, etc) reached through an
address contained in the RSS.
