Hi All,
Is it normal for squid to not cache files from a backend webserver if the
url is protected by a .htaccess file with basic auth?
Im running squid 2.6.5-6etch1 with conf:
http_port 80 vhost
cache_peer localhost parent 1234 0 originserver default login=PASS icp_port
0 hierarchy_stoplist cgi-bin ?
cache_mem 1024 MB
maximum_object_size 4096 KB
maximum_object_size_in_memory 2048 KB
cache_dir ufs /var/spool/squid 1024 16 256 logformat combined %>a %ui %un
[%tl] [%tr] "%rm %ru HTTP/%rv" %Hs %<st "%{Referer}>h" "%{User-Agent}>h"
%Ss:%Sh access_log /var/log/squid/access.log combined emulate_httpd_log on
log_mime_hdrs on
refresh_pattern ^ftp: 1440 20% 10080
refresh_pattern ^gopher: 1440 0% 1440
refresh_pattern . 0 20% 4320
connect_timeout 20 seconds
acl all src
acl manager proto cache_object
acl localhost src acl to_localhost dst
acl Safe_ports port 80 # http
acl purge method PURGE
http_access allow manager localhost
http_access deny manager
http_access allow purge localhost
http_access deny purge
http_access deny !Safe_ports
http_access allow localhost
http_access allow all
http_reply_access allow all
cachemgr_passwd xx all
strip_query_terms off
coredump_dir /var/spool/squid
Basically when I access a url with out the .htaccess in place I can get a
TCP_MEM_HIT:NONE But as soon as I place the .htaccess back in place I never
Is there a way around this? I have numerous largeish files sitting being
served from a NFS mount which would be much better off served from memory
but the files need to be behind some auth mechanism.
