I have Debian 8 with PHP 5.6 installed on my server. I recently installed Magento 2.0.2 and also successfully installed varnish-4.0.2 to use it as a cache on my web server.

I tried to configure varnish-4.0.2 with magento 2 but unfortunately, I'm getting failed every time. The reason why I am saying this because varnish is giving no such performance as compared to I previously experienced with Magento Can anyone please guide me with proper configuration and installation of varnish with magento 2?

  • any errors or headers info??

  • Have you checked the official documentation? devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/config-guide/varnish/… Also how do you know it's not performing better? Do you have anything to back up this affirmation or is just an opinion?

  • @MagenX No errors but the load time is still the same with or without varnish. Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 14:22
  • @mbalparda when I use same varnish installation with Magento 1.x, it is working great and also giving my application a boost. But when I am using it with Magento 2, the load time is same also I checked it from tools.pingdom.com Commented Mar 8, 2016 at 14:24

Go to Admin panel -> Configuration -> Full Page Cache -> Varnish Configuration: Use following settings:

  • Caching Application: Varnish Caching
  • TTL for public content: 86400
  • Access list: localhost
  • Backend host: IP of Varnish Server
  • Backend port: Public Port of Varnish Server

Hope this will help...
