Setting the cache administrator

We skipped many configuration options earlier in our eagerness to get our proxy working.

let's return an look at a couple more. The first of these is setting the cache administrator. This is the person (probably yourself) responsible for maintaining the proxy.

It would be nice if the user, on obtaining an error on their web browser, could have an email address of someone to contact if they are having problems leaving the local network.

The cache_mgr directive offers just such a solution.


Not only is this email address printed on the bottom of pages when the proxy cannot retrieve the page (as shown above), it is also the person who will receive email in the event that the proxy goes legs-up.
