Videocache is no longer in development.

Which user runs VideoCache

by Anonymous on 17 Jun 2009

I just installed the latest Squid 3.0. It runs as proxy:proxy by default. The documentation of VideoCache mentions squid user as the owner of VideoCache directories.

Should the owner be squid:squid as in documentation or proxy:proxy as the uid of Squid process?

It should be proxy:proxy just as Squid is. If you're just installing videocache then modify lines 33 and 35 of to reflect proxy:proxy before running the installation script.
