This is kind of a strange request. What i want to do is get nginx to
proxy urls such as the following
to a squid forward proxy, essentially grabbing the content of
www.yahoo.com from a squid cache.
By doing a GET http://www.yahoo.com request, the squid proxy will
return back that content.
I haven’t had any success with getting URL rewriting with the
proxy_pass and rewrite module to be able to send that type of GET
request to squid.
The best I can do is GET /http://www.yahoo.com, which squid calls an
invalid request, and therefore does not return the content.
Any suggestions how to do this without writing a new nginx module? I
currently am running my own http forward proxy that is more flexible,
but I would rather use squid for better scalability and caching.
Thanks in advance,
