Lighttpd / Apache : Run Xcache in Chrooted Jail

Posted on in Categories CentOS, Debian Linux, Gentoo Linux, Howto, lighttpd, Linux, php, RedHat/Fedora Linux last updated November 26, 2007

Recently I wrote about installing and running Xcache under Red hat enterprise Linux and CentOS Linux. By default Xcache use /dev/zero for caching. All you have to do is create /dev/zero in chrooted jail. Type the following command (assuming that your jail is located at /lighttpd.jail directory):
# mkdir -p /lighttpd.jail/dev
# mknod -m 666 /lighttpd.jail/dev/zero c 1 5

Just restart your web server and xcache should work under chrooted lighttpd web server.
