While Apache Listing to Port 8080 - Website is Not Working

I have successfully installed varnish cache on Cpanel + Centos 6.5 + Apache. While I changed the Apache port from 80 to 8080, my website stop functioning. However, While I switch back to default Port 80 then Website start responding. Varnish cache is installed and listing to port 80.

I did below mention steps to install varnish.

yum install -y gcc make automake autoconf libtool ncurses-devel libxslt groff pcre-devel pckgconfig libedit libedit-devel

rpm --nosignature -i

yum install varnish

Please help me on this.

My Setting is

 nano -w /etc/sysconfig/varnish

Not setting VARNISH_LISTEN_ADDRESS makes Varnish listen on all IPs on this box

(Both IPv4 and IPv6 if available). Set manually to override this.



Telnet admin interface listen address and port


nano -w /etc/varnish/default.vcl

backend default { .host = “”; .port = “8080”; }

I am using apache 2.4 php 5.5 cpanel centos 6.5 64X

What i have to do next

Did you configure varnish to use localhost:8080 as backend?

also remember to restart both services after changing the config files.

Sounds like iptables. What does “iptables -L” return. Probably port 80 is open but port 8080 is not.
