Installation on RedHat

Varnish is distributed in the EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) package repositories. However, while EPEL allows new versions to be distributed, it does not allow for backwards-incompatible changes. Therefore, new major versions will not hit EPEL and it is therefore not necessarily up to date. If you require a newer major version than what is available in EPEL, you should use the repository provided by varnish-cache.org.

If you are on RHEL 5 or a compatible distribution, use

rpm --nosignature -i http://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-3.0/el5/noarch/varnish-release/varnish-release-3.0-1.el5.centos.noarch.rpm

For RHEL 6 and compatible distributions, use

rpm --nosignature -i http://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-3.0/el6/noarch/varnish-release/varnish-release-3.0-1.el6.noarch.rpm


and then run

yum install varnish

The --no-signature is only needed on initial installation, since the Varnish GPG key is not yet in the yum keyring
