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The versions there might be out of date, but they provide a simple and elegant way of getting started with Varnish Cache.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get 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 repo.varnish-cache.org (<5.0)¶
To use the varnish-cache.org repository and install Varnish on Debian jessie do the following as root:
$ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https $ curl https://repo.varnish-cache.org/GPG-key.txt | sudo apt-key add - $ echo "deb https://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/ jessie varnish-4.1" \ | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/varnish-cache.list $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install varnish
There are Ubuntu builds available under
Some earlier/legacy builds are also available under the “varnish-3.0” and “varnish-4.0” components.
