INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPILED ZIP BUNDLE:

The ZIP includes Varnish and Cygwin, PDCurses and PCRE DLLs. It is not needed to install previous software.

1) Download zip file from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/windows-zip-bundle/
2) Unzip file to instalation directory (default is: c:/varnish). Update Path in BAT files ( in bin subdirectory ) in case of changing default dir.
3) Create VCL configuration file (http://www.varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/VCL)
4) Create varnishd-custom.bat file with custom TCP ports, VCL files and directories. There are some examples in bin directory.
5) Execute varnish with varnishd-custom.bat.


INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR CYGWIN CYGPORT PACKAGES:

The tar.bz2 files are instaled in Cygwin with "setup.exe" cygwin application: http://www.cygwin.com/setup.exe

1) Download setup.exe in localhost
2) Install CYGWIN enviroment with "setup.exe"
3) Option one:
	3.1) Select "varnish" package from package list in Web category -> package will be download from cygwin servers
4) Option two:
	4.1) Download cygport varnish-*.tar.bz2 varnish package files from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/cygport-packages/
	4.2) Execute "setup.exe", select "Install from Local Directory" and select path where *.tar.bz2 files are located.


BUILD INSTRUCTIONS FROM CYGPORT PACKAGES:

1) Download cygport varnish-*-src.tar.bz2 varnish package files from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/cygport-packages/
2) Uncompress tar.bz2 files to /usr/src directory
3) Execute cygport commands:
	3.1) cygport varnish-{version}.cygport prep
	3.2) cygport varnish-{version}.cygport compile
	3.3) cygport varnish-{version}.cygport install
4) Compiled binaries are copied to varnish-{version}/inst


BUILD INSTRUCTIONS FROM SOURCE:

If you want build varnish on cygwin from source you must:

1) Install CYGWIN environment from http://www.cygwin.com/ with the tools listed in: http://www.varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/Installation
		- A recent version of  GCC (3.3.x or newer should be fine, 4.2.1 or newer recommended)
		- A POSIX-compatible make (GNU make is fine)
		- Recent versions of the GNU autotools ( automake,  autoconf,  libtool and  ncurses) 
		- Docutils-0.7: http://docutils.sourceforge.net/
		
2) Download Varnish source from: http://www.varnish-cache.org
		
3) Apply cygwin-varnish patch to varnish source, file: varnish-{version}.src.patch from https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/patch-files/

4) (optional) To reduce runtime DLL dependencies with Cygwin, install following native libraries:
		4.1) PDCurses: http://pdcurses.sourceforge.net/   or   https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/third-party-win32-sources/
				- Uninstall ncurses from cygwin or remove theirs DLL
				- Compile PDCurses in Cygwin or Mingw (http://2cent-info.blogspot.com/2010/07/pdcurses-for-mingw32_19.html)
				- Modify gccwin32.mak file, adding -mno-cygwin flag in CFLAGS, LDFLAGS and LIBFLAGS for native compilation
				
		4.2) PCRE 7.0: http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/pcre.htm   or   https://sourceforge.net/projects/cygvarnish/files/third-party-win32-sources/
				- Replace cygwin *.dll, lib*.dll.a and *.pc files with native versions
				
5) Compile Varnish in Cygwin with standard instructions: http://www.varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/Installation
		- ./autogen.sh
		- ./configure --prefix=/usr ,  ./configure --prefix=/usr/local	or ./configure --prefix=  with empty prefix, if you want to get shorter Windows Paths at the end.
		- make
		- make install
		
6) (optional) In order to save space you can create a minimal cygwin distribution only with varnish files, GCC files, cygwin1.dll, pcre.dll and pdcurses.dll.
