Apache/Varinish redirecting to

Posted August 22, 2014 2.9k views

I’ve set up Apache/Varnish but when I try to access a folder on the domain, such as it is redirecting to and I’m getting a page not available. However when I access with a trailing “/” at the end everything works fine. I’m pretty new to Varnish so any help troubleshooting would be appreciated.

Is Apache listening on 8080 publicly? Usually the way to do it is have Apache listening on the local loopback device. What’s the Varnish backend configuration?

backend default {
    .host = "";
    .port = "8080";

In /etc/apache2/ports.conf you should set Apache to listen locally:


And your VirtualHost should look like:
