I am running an Nginx reverse proxy on port 80, with Apache behind on port 81. I do not have nginx set up to serve boost cache files, only static assets.
If I hit port 80 from my browser, or curl on the box itself, it generates a cached file. However the crawler fails to generate a file, despite Apache access log suggesting the crawler is regularly hitting pages (the site is not public, access is only allowed for IP exceptions).
I have setup the cron to hit either Nginx or Apache directly, neither seems to make much difference, both show hits from 127.0.0.1 to cron.php, /boost-crawler and various pages that must be originating from the crawler, but at no point are cache files generated.
After a couple of hours /boost-crawler is still being hit, but no crawling is happening at all now.
I am using Debug 9 but nothing in the dblog seems to point to any error, its simply full of the following messages:
