I'm trying to configure a Reverse Caching Proxy but so far have had no luck. I would preferrably like to use apache (that will be all it will be used for), but am open to solutions using other software that can also run on Mac OS X 10.6 (I have also tried using Varnish and Squid, but with no more luck).
We're running a system with about 80 mac mini clients that will be requesting lots of video from a server. To reduce load, we thought we could use Apache (which comes on the macs by default) to cache this video forever (or at least as long as possible) onto the macs' disks.
I have managed to get a reverse proxy set up with apache using
ProxyPass etc, but when i tried to add
CacheEnable disk / to the configuration, nothing happened (i do have mod_disk_cache included).
Can anyone help with my issue? The apache config file is here
Thanks in advance
Edit: So far I have been testing it with smaller text files, and it hasn't been caching properly. This suggests it is nothing to do with us actually downloading video, but actually to do with the cache configuration.
