We don’t have an article on installing Varnish on Ubuntu 14.04 just yet. Though there is one on using Varnish with Apache on Ubuntu 12.04. It should be more or less the same.

Let us know if you run into any problems!

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator and a useful tool for speeding up a server, especially during a times when there is high traffic to a site. It works by redirecting visitors to static pages whenever possible and only drawing on the virtual private server itself if there is a need for an active process. This tutorial covers setting up Varnish with Apache on Ubuntu 12.04.

Thats great thanks. Could I put forward a suggestion? When you do one for ubuntu 14 could you include some info on Varnish and SSL


Thats great thanks! One other thing to add to it maybe is how to setup varnish to allow phpmyadmin to still work as I just found out its quite an experience!

Just follow the instructions provided here

For 14.04 you would have to change precise to trusty and choose your desired version in the deb command.

Worked great with varnish 3.0.
