Out of the box vbulletin is php and runs best with fastcgi. You'll get
the most value out of serving images on a separate domain that varnish
answers. The cookies make it difficult.


Best running example of a big vbulletin instance is which is nginx and fastcgi, no apache.

Subject: Does vbulletin support varnish?


Hi all,

Can someone confirm whether vbulletin supports varnish out of the box?
Does vbulletin know how to send specific purge requests to varnish on
updates? My concern is mainly about stale cache. I would prefer not to
have to send purge requests manually. Any tips or help is greatly
