Using an NFS share as squid cache directory, possible?
This is a confused Linux newbie groping in the dark...
Here's the setup:
I've got a PIII with Suse linux 9 which I'm using as a firewall, interent gateway and transparent proxy server for my LAN. Problem is I've only got 6GB Harddisk space, and squid is filling that up quickly. My boss would like me to use a 160GB Quantum snap server 2200 as the cache directory, it's hooked up to the network and mounted it as an NFS network drive. The problem is, I can copy files to and from this mountpoint, But I can't set permissions to any files residing on this network drive. When I change the cache directory in squid.conf and then restart squid I get the following error:
Failed to make swap directory /cache/squid/00: (13) Permission denied
Squid Cache (Version 2.5.STABLE3): Terminated abnormally.
CPU Usage: 0.001 seconds = 0.000 user + 0.001 sys
Maximum Resident Size: 0 KB
Squid runs fine off my local HD. Is there any way around this? Is it a problem with my 2200 snap server?
Extremely grateful for any replies,
