NAME

       apt-cacher-ng - caching proxy for software package downloads

SYNOPSIS

       apt-cacher-ng [-c confdir] [-h] [optname=optvalue ...]

DESCRIPTION

       Apt-Cacher  NG  is  a  caching  proxy  for  software packages which are
       downloaded by Unix/Linux system  distribution  mechanisms  from  mirror
       servers accessible via HTTP.

OPTIONS

       The command-line options supported by apt-cacher-ng are:

       -c confdir
              Scan   the   specified  configuration  directory  and  interpret
              configuration files find there.

       -h     Short option summary

       varname=varopt
              The options from the configuration can be passed on the  command
              line as key=value pairs.

CONFIGURATION

       Apt-Cacher  NG  is  configured  by  a  multi-config directory, i.e. the
       configuration is split into many configuration files having names  with
       suffix  .conf  and stored in a single directory. Variables can override
       previously  configured  settings  from  other  files,  sometimes   that
       settings are merged (depending on the variable).

       The  configuration directory is typically /etc/apt-cacher-ng but it can
       be adjusted with the -C option (see systemd service file for details or
       wherever the init system starts the daemon).

       On Debian systems, there are at least three files installed by default:
       acng.conf (containing documented examples),  security.conf  (containing
       sensible  data and only readable for special users) and zz_debconf.conf
       (containing popular settings which are set by the Debian  Configuration
       mechanism).

SIGNALS

       Only few signals are handled in non-default ways.

       SIGUSR1 closes and reopens log files.

       SIGTERM and SIGINT close log files and stop the daemon.

MORE INFORMATION

       For  more  information on Apt-Cacher NG, read the User Manual which can
       be found either in the doc/pdf directory of the software source package
       or  installed  in  the documentation directory of apt-cacher-ng by your
       distribution.
