Support Varnish

I'd like the ability to install and configure Varnish with cPanel. I've manually done this on a few web servers, and Varnish increased both the speed and capacity of the servers.

That would be really useful!

Please cPanel, do consider this.

Any chance we could get it? When?

Thanks,

I have read great reports about varnish. Please, add this feature.

Varnish or equivalent can improve performance dramatically. It seems like this would be a common configuration.

Yes, it would be nice to have Varnish right trought Cpanel, not by a plugin.

In my oppinion, if varnish was supported, to make it usable on shared hosting, users would have to be able to :

1) Disable varnish on their account

2) Add their own URL exclusions

3) Choose varnish rules templates

I do not see the point of using varnish for static files.

I also have already played with unixy's varnish implementation and each custom built site needs rules added and implemented.

Varnish is only good for two things :

1) With a custom configuration per website

2) For webhosts that prefer having more sites hosted per server in exchange of customers having issues with cache.

If cPanel were to allow individual users to configure their own varnish, then this would indeed be a great feature, but otherwise we would not use it.

This would be great. Anyone who has a CMS, or any kind of dynamically generated pages, would benefit from being able to manage Varnish through cPanel. I've installed it without cPanel support anyway, but I'd like to see it soon so that it's easier to manage when I install the next iteration of servers.

I second monarobase idea. Hope it may be taken into consideration because CMS are now more common in every account than before.

Varnish is an essential app today, this reverse proxy can be combined with nginx to speeds up delivery with a factor of 500x to 1000x

Please consider to add it asap.

Varnishwould be a great feature. But to install Varnish, we would need a way for theuser to edit his site VCL file directly from inside his cPanel account.

So Isuggest that the default VCL for all site wouldn’t kept anything in cache(anyway, if a site doesn’t have much traffic, Varnish won’t help much) and havea per site VCL configuration editor where one user could control the cache settingfor Varnish.

Since a bad VCL configuration can cause great problem on a transactional site!
