Installation on Red Hat Linux¶
Varnish Cache is packaged in RPMs for easy installation and upgrade on Red Hat systems.
The Varnish Cache project maintains official packages for the current Enterprise Linux versions. Varnish Cache 4.0 and 4.1 are supported on EL6 and EL7.
If you are on a compatible Linux distribution, use:
yum install epel-release rpm --nosignature -i https://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-4.1.el7.rpm (or: rpm --nosignature -i https://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-4.1.el6.rpm for RHEL6) yum install varnish
If you are on RHEL 6 or a compatible distribution, use:
yum install epel-release rpm --nosignature -i https://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-4.0.el6.rpm yum install varnish
For RHEL 7 and compatible distributions, use:
yum install epel-release rpm --nosignature -i https://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-4.0.el7.rpm yum install varnish
The –no-signature argument is only needed on initial installation, since the Varnish GPG key is not yet in the yum keyring.
Varnish Cache is also distributed in third party package repositories.
- Fedora EPEL does community packaging of Varnish Cache.
- RedHat has packaged versions of Varnish Cache available since Software Collections 2.1. Announcement on <http://developers.redhat.com/blog/2015/11/17/software-collections-2-1-generally-available/>.

Varnish Cache is also made available by Varnish Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Here is a list of the current instances available:
Fresh releases, such as Varnish Cache 5, will be made available soon.
