Question, I dont want Squid caching XML files.

Hello, I'm experimenting with Squid [ job task =( ]

Now Squid is configured to cache deb, zip, tbz2, gz, flv, etc. but I dont know how skip caching xml and other file types.

Any Suggestions?

You would setup an regex acl that matched the file extensions you don't want cached then 'cache deny AclName', if memory serves me it's a lot like this:

acl NoCacheURL url_regex -i \.xml
cache deny NoCacheURL
(Edit: Might wanna make it a bit more restrictive than that of course)
