Did you follow the upgrade notes properly? Restarted your Apache webserver and squid proxy server after the upgrade/installation ? That url is not an error, it is the new intended behavior to support multiple caching directories.
Please have a look at the upgrade process and let me know if you get any errors with videocache.
I was getting the same erro installing videocache 1.9, then I realized Apache2's error.log was saying "File does not exist: /var/www/videocache/0/youtube". Then I was in /var/cache/videocache and created a directory named 0 and inside him I made a symbolic link with:
ln -s /var/spool/videocache/youtube/ /var/spool/videocache/0/
Now my videocache is working fine.
I'm using Debian Etch.
Congratulations for you work!
That ln command is not needed. I suspect something wrong with your installation. Can you paste your /etc/apache2/conf.d/videocache.conf file somewhere like http://pastebin.com/ ?
PS : Did you change apache_conf_dir variable in setup.py while installing videocache?
I'm using Apache2 and change in setup.py the variable apache_conf_dir for "apache_conf_dir = '/etc/apache2/sites-available/'". Then in this directory is the file videocache.conf.
This is the videocache.conf:
Alias /videocache/0 /var/spool/videocache <Directory /var/spool/videocache> Options +Indexes Order Allow,Deny #Comment the following line and uncomment the next for public use #Deny from all Allow from all </Directory>
Then it should have worked without create a 0 directory in /var/spool/videocache/ . It seems your Apache is not treating aliases as it should?
But other aliases it's treating very well. When I install the videocache it will create a directory 0 inside the /var/spool/videocache?
No. When you do a clean installation of videocache, it is not supposed to create a directory '0' in /var/spool/videocache.
I'm writting a HOW-TO install the cachevideo. Then, I'll indicate in text to create the 0 directory. OK?
No. Thats not the standard way. I am not able to understand why its not working. But don't worry, I'll fix it up in next version. You can write that as a tip or hack in the howto marking it with a star or something.
Thank you for your efforts :)
Same problem upgrading from 1.8 to 1.9 on FreeBSD. But I think it is my fault because I used a symbolic link to declare to my Apache where the videocache folder is. I didn't modify the Apache configuration.
At previous versions I made:
cd /www ln -s /var/spool/videocache videocache
(/www it is a symbolic link to my root Apache folder)
For 1.9 I made:
cd /www unlink videocache mkddir videocache cd videocache ln -s /var/spool/videocache 0
