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The versions there might be out of date, but they provide a simple and elegant way of getting started with Varnish Cache.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 repo.varnish-cache.org (<5.0)

To use the varnish-cache.org repository and install Varnish on Debian jessie do the following as root:

apt-get install apt-transport-https
curl https://repo.varnish-cache.org/GPG-key.txt | apt-key add -
echo "deb https://repo.varnish-cache.org/debian/ 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.
