How can I tell squid to cache everything? I basically want to cache the packages that are fetched by apt-get, I have grabbed the same packages multiple times now but they are not cached. It seems to not be caching any type of "application", which .deb files are marked as applications in my mime I guess.
apt-get actually archives .deb to be installed at /var/cache/apt/archives !!
I know, but i'm trying to cache .deb files for my whole network for speed and lessening load on the real servers. Is there a solution for this?
setup a local debian apt repository on your server
and add it in /etc/apt/sources.list of your local machines
if thats what you asked for ?!
Well that is an option if you don't have to set up a full mirror (i.e. all packages)... But how do you make it download from my mirror and the official mirror (also in that order)?
If possible i'd still like application caching over squid for .exe's or w/e else unless it's not secure.
