Question

Missing guide/tutorial for setting up Varnish server

Hi there,

I have failed to find a updated/good tutorial/article on setting up Varnish on a Ubuntu server running nginx and with SSL enabled.

Could anyone point me in the right directions or tell me how I could set this up?

I’m running a “normal” setup with Nginx and SSL on Ubuntu 18.04.

Thanks!

Hello, @mattiasf

I believe the existing tutorial we have is for Ubuntu 14.04:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-varnish-cache-4-0-with-ssl-termination-on-ubuntu-14-04

May I ask if there is a specific reason that you want to use Varnish? As you know Varnish does not support SSL termination natively.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Regards, Alex
