LanCache on a Debian Server

2019 Update: I’ve not updated this in a while, and I’ve recently gotten better internet. This project is useless for me, but The Lancache Project is still working, and has much better documentation than this old-ass blog post.

I spent a little too long figuring out exactly what project was the best, so I’m using this blog to document my successes as I find them.


  • Debian 9 (or similar)
  • nginx with CachePurge, Range Cache, Wandenberg Stream Module (installed in installation process, if you have another webserver, remove it)
  • SSD with a decent amount of storage (I’m using a KingSpec NT-512 from aliexpress.)
  • A decent LAN connection

The dummies guide

cd ~/git
git clone
git clone
cd lancache-installer
