Installation on Debian and Ubuntu

Varnish Cache is distributed in the Debian and Ubuntu package repositories.

Official packages of 5

Starting from Varnish Cache 5.0, we’ve simplified our packaging down to two: the main package and a development package.

The official Varnish Cache repository is now hosted at Packagecloud.io. Note that while Packagecloud.io provides Bash Script installs, we recommend using the manual installation procedures.
