Installation on Debian and Ubuntu

Varnish Cache is distributed in the Debian and Ubuntu package repositories.

The versions there might be out of date, but they provide a simple and elegant way of getting started with Varnish Cache.

apt update apt install varnish

Official packages of 5.0

Starting from Varnish Cache 5.0, we’ve simplified our packaging down to two, the main package and a development package.

In due time, we may add these to some repository software. Currently they’re available on:

Packages from (<5.0)

To use the repository and install Varnish on Debian jessie do the following as root:

apt-get install apt-transport-https
curl | apt-key add -
echo "deb jessie varnish-4.1"\
    >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/varnish-cache.list
apt-get update
apt-get install varnish

There are Ubuntu builds available under /ubuntu/.

Some earlier/legacy builds are also available under the “varnish-3.0” and “varnish-4.0” components.

List of supported platforms varies.
