WordPress Varnish is a simple plugin that purges new and edited content.
This plugin purges your varnish cache when content is added or edited. This includes when a new post is added, a post is updated or when a comment is posted to your blog.
To keep widgets like "Recent posts", "Recent comments" and such up to date, you should consider using ESI and include them through a text widget for arbitrary text or HTML.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
Frequently Asked Questions
Does this just work?
But how should my varnish configuration file look like?
I have provided a simple VCL that can be used as a reference.
Does it work for Multi-Site (or WPMU)?
Yes. Activating the plugin site-wide will provide the functionality to all blogs. Configuration can be done on the blogs individually, or can be global. If you want to configure Varnish servers globally, edit wp-config.php and include these lines just before "That's all, stop editing!" message:
global $varnish_servers; $varnish_servers = array('192.168.0.1:80','192.168.0.2:80'); define('VARNISH_SHOWCFG',1);
The varnish servers array will configure multiple servers for sending the purges. If VARNISH_SHOWCFG is defined, configuration will be shown to all users who access the plugin configuration page (but they can't edit it).
