mod_accel can work with mod_rewrite as mod_proxy does ([P] flag) but mod_proxy would loose this functionality if mod_accel installed. In all other cases mod_proxy can work with mod_accel in one Apache. > In conjunction with mod_rewrite as url filter, I would like to be able > to use mod_accel as a proxy for only the http request portion of a > client request and allow for the http response portion to be served > directly from the backend to the client.

No. But mod_accel can simply proxies request without caching. You can set 'AccelNoCache on' on per-server, per-Location and per-Files basis. You can send 'X-Accel-Expires: 0' header from backend. You can use usual 'Cache-Control: no-cache" or Expires headers. With mod_accel your mod_rewite using can be eliminated with AccelNoPass directive: AccelPass / http://backend/ AccelNoPass /images /download ~*\.jpg$ > Is it possible to integrate apache 2.0's mod_cache with mod_accel > and/or add mod_accel's features to mod_proxy? I have plans to make mod_accel Apache 2.0 compatible but not right now. I wait Apache 2.0 stabilzation. As to mod_proxy, I've wrote replacement for mod_proxy because it's to difficult to hack it. It was much simpler to write module from scratch. Igor Sysoev
