Installing Varnish on Ubuntu 18.04

Varnish is an open-source HTTP accelerator and caching reverse proxy. It speeds up websites by caching frequently requested content and serving it directly, reducing server load and improving website performance.

To install Varnish on Ubuntu 18.04, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open a terminal on your Ubuntu 18.04 server.
  2. Update the package manager cache by running the following command:
    sudo apt update
  3. Install Varnish by executing the command:
    sudo apt install varnish
  4. Once the installation process is complete, you can start and enable Varnish to run at boot time using the following command:
    sudo systemctl enable --now varnish
  5. Verify the installation by checking the status of Varnish:
    sudo systemctl status varnish

By default, Varnish listens on port 6081 and forwards requests to the backend web server on port 80. You may need to adjust these settings based on your specific configuration.

Once Varnish is installed and running, you can configure it further to optimize caching for your website and improve its performance. This can involve setting cache rules, managing cache size, and configuring Varnish to work with SSL/TLS encrypted connections.

Remember to periodically monitor and tune Varnish's settings to ensure optimum performance based on your website's traffic and requirements.
