VideoCache

Running VideoCache

Once we are done with configuring VideoCache and Squid, we are all set to run VideoCache. Running VideoCache is a multi-step process as described below.

  • Run the update script vc-update which basically updates our system by creating required directories and files

[root@white-magnet ~]$ vc-update
  • Start Apache Web Server

[root@white-magnet ~]$ apachectl restart
OR
[root@white-magnet ~]$ apache2ctl restart
  • Start Squid Proxy Server

[root@white-magnet ~]$ service squid start
OR
[root@white-magnet ~]$ service squid3 start
OR
[root@white-magnet ~]$ /etc/init.d/squid start
  • Start VideoCache Scheduler script vc-scheduler

[root@white-magnet ~]$ vc-scheduler -s start
OR
[root@white-magnet ~]$ vc-scheduler -s restart
