Subject Re: [users@httpd] Proxy and Caching

You can run mod_cache with revers proxy and it will cache the back end files
if you tell it to do. Have a look at mod_expires too for some client side
caching too.

I am installing Wibiya toolbar on my site. But the .js file for the toolbar

But I can't store the file locally because sometimes it may get updated on
wibiya's location.

My server has caching (disk) enabled.

Is it possible to cache the requests by ProxyPass ?

Or there's some other method by which Apache will download the file if and
only if it is updated (mod_cache does this for local files).
