Varnish config on Debian

May 14 2010 : posted under debian varnish

I’ve just spent too long being very confused as to why varnish wasn’t working

I’d forgotten that the Debian version doesn’t read the default.vcl config file by default!

You have to edit /etc/default/varnish and specify the config type you want.

I was getting the error message

Error 503 Service Unavailable

Error talking to backend
