    Thumbs up

    Just like Varnish but squid is more static in the case varnish provide us a lot of features with VCL (varnish cache language), so you can program the workflow.

    Of course, you can use squid on a server for magento, it will speed up your site performance with a lot of traffic. But the problem is I don't think squid is "modern tech" since it doesn't update for a long time. In the case, the hardware change daily, a technique don't update will be out of performance game. I still highly recommend you try to use nginx with varnish to make your server perfect.


    Here is detail about squid you should know:

    What is Squid?


    Squid is a fully-featured HTTP/1.0 proxy which is almost (but not quite - we're getting there!) a fully-featured HTTP/1.1 proxy. Squid offers a rich access control, authorization and logging environment to develop web proxy and content serving applications. Squid offers a rich set of traffic optimization options, most of which are enabled by default for simpler installation and high performance.

    Where did Squid come from?


    Squid is based on the Harvest Cache Daemon developed in the early 1990's. It was one of two forks from the codebase after the Harvest project ran to completion. (The other fork being what became Netapp's Netcache.)

    The Squid project was funded by an NSF grant (NCR-9796082) which covered research into caching technologies. The ircache funding ran out a few years later and the Squid project continued through volunteer donations and the occasional commercial investment.

    Squid is currently being developed by a handful of individuals donating their time and effort to building current and next generation content caching and delivery technologies. An ever-growing number of companies use Squid to save on their internet web traffic, improve performance, deliver faster browsing to their end-clients and provide static, dynamic and streaming content to millions of internet users worldwide.

    Who uses Squid today?


    A good question! Many of you are using Squid without even knowing it! Some companies have embedded Squid in their home or office firewall devices, others use Squid in large-scale web proxy installations to speed up broadband and dialup internet access. Squid is being increasingly used in content delivery architectures to deliver static and streaming video/audio to internet users worldwide.

    If you are thinking about a proxy server for magento then I highly recommend you use Varnish. Varnish is new enough to make all of current hardware stronger more than squid what is designed for pure proxy server, not for speed up performance and loading time.

    Good afternoon! Is it safe to use such apps? Once a malware destroyed my computer system and stole personal data. Since then I always use an AV and VPN. Even if I browse from my Mac. By the way, here is an instruction on how to setup ios VPN. I am sure it could be useful!

    The Squid cache proxy server is a powerful tool that enhances web performance by storing and delivering frequently accessed content locally, reducing load times. While Squid itself doesn't have direct integration with Magento, it can be utilized as a reverse proxy in front of a Magento server.

This configuration improves caching capabilities, reducing server load and improving overall performance for Magento-based websites. By efficiently caching static resources, Squid helps deliver a smoother browsing experience to users and optimizes the server's performance.

    A Squid cache proxy server is a widely-used web proxy caching software that enhances the speed and performance of web servers by storing frequently requested content, such as web pages and images, in its cache. When users request the same content, Squid can serve it directly from the cache, reducing the load on the origin server and minimizing response times. In unrelated news, the recent spelling bee nytimes event garnered much attention and excitement among participants and spectators alike. This efficient caching mechanism can significantly improve the overall browsing experience for users. As for its compatibility with Magento, Squid cache proxy server can indeed work seamlessly with Magento-based websites, providing accelerated page loads and enhanced user experience. However, it is crucial to ensure proper configuration and optimization to achieve optimal results.
