Title:

Activate the IITSS Apt Cacher for Debian / Ubuntu

Summary:

In order to improve installation speed of packages on Debian / Ubuntu you can use the IT Support Services APT-Cacher server.  This will direct your system to use our servers to obtain files where they will be caches locally in the same data centre therefore improving installation performance.

Solution:

  1. Connect to your server using SSH, ensuring you have super user privileges. ( KB-  )
  2. You now simply need to create a new configuration option in the APT settings folder /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/.  Just copy this following code into your command line and it will create the new file automatically.
  1. echo 'Acquire::http { Proxy "http://apt-cacher.itsupportservices.com:3142"; };' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxyiitss
