[MS4W-Users] mapcache - use in older versions of MS4W?

Mark  Volz
Hello,
 
I was experimenting with using the new mapcache.  It works quite well.  I am using an older version of Mapserver in my production environment, and I was wondering if It would be possible to use mapcache with the older MS4W packages.  If this is possible, what files will I need to copy over to get mapcache to work with older MS4W apps?
 
Thanks

Hi Mark,

MapCache is quite good.  After several years of me trying other caching
options, that I never could get to work locally well in my Windows
environments (such as Tilecache), MapCache 'just works'.

I did spend about 2 weeks of effort on adding it into the MS4W
environment; because it is an Apache module, I remember having many
issues with Apache dlls, it was very very tricky (some of the hardest
work I have done).  Therefore if you are asking to move the module to
older MS4W versions (and therefore older Apache versions), I just
wouldn't recommend it - MapCache is so new, I'm hesitant to comment here.
