Apache cache growing large

On Windows server, the Apache cache (C:\ProgramData\Apache HTTP Proxy\cache) folder seems to be growing excessively.

 

Currently, it's about 12GB in size and close to 1,500 folders. Is there a means or method to safely clean up this folder and reduce the size?

 

Thank you.

Hello, if you install apache http proxy using all-in-one installer, cleanups will be automatically enabled. For further analysis, please send us contents of cache htcacheclean –and C:/ProgramData/Apache HTTP Proxy/cache

Thanks,

Michal

Thanks for the reply.  I'm not sure what you mean by, "contents of cache htcacheclean".  Is that a folder or file?  If so, where it it located?

What about virtual appliance? Is cleanup enabled by default?

@bbahes - On Virtual appliance, cleanup is enabled by default.

@j-gray - you will locate htcacheclean in "bin" directory, where http proxy is installed

Thanks. I found this KB article.  I missed the fact that the Apache cache config required multiple manual commands to completely configure.

 

So I created the recommended scheduled task and ran it. Cache size is down to 2GBs. Much better.

 

 

...and just a heads-up; there are multiple syntax errors in the commands provided in that KB. I'm sure it would alleviate some frustration if it were corrected.
