Hoping there are some Varnish guru's out there that can show me my mistake here. I'm experiencing an endless 302 redirect for both the frontend and admin. Here is my configuration:

Magento URL & Cache Configuration

Magento URL Configuration

Magento Cache Configuration

Note: If I change the web/unsecure/base_url to http://dev.mydomain.com I can get the frontend to work and this makes sense to me because Varnish is trying to access Magento over http. The problem with this is that all my links on the site are then written as http which is bad for several reasons. Also, with this setting the admin still continues the endless 302 redirect.

  • You cleared varnish and Magento block cache after making your https and use_in configurations? Not a solution but one tip is that you can check you are using varnish by switching to developer mode and checking the headers - first hit you should see X-Magento-Cache-Debug: MISS devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/config-guide/varnish/… also check your cookie domain config – Dominic Xigen Feb 19 at 21:48
  • @DominicXigen Yeah, I have cleared the cache and checked headers so varnish is working. I get a MISS, then a HIT. – Casey Feb 20 at 1:10

I found a solution to this at Varnish - NGINX serving all resources HTTP instead of HTTPS (Magento 2)

Since I had such a hard time finding the solution specifically for my setup I'll copy the answer here as well:

Find the line like this in nginx.config: location ~ (index|get|static|report|404|503|health_check|phpinfo).php$ { .... }

Add this line: fastcgi_param HTTPS on; above: include fastcgi_params;

Restart NGINX! Worked for me!

May be you are missing to clear cache, then try again. By the way which url is trying to redirect you as 302 ?
