Installing on FreeBSD

From package

FreeBSD offers two versions of Varnish pre-packaged:

pkg install varnish6

or, if for some reason you want the older version:

pkg install varnish4

From ports

The FreeBSD packages are built out of the “ports” tree, and you can install varnish directly from ports if you prefer, for instance to get a newer version of Varnish than the current set of prebuilt packages provide:

cd /usr/ports/www/varnish6
make all install clean
