We're using Magento 1.8 with Turpentine + Varnish + Redis on Debian with nginx.

Sometimes it happens that the checkout is cached and you can see the info from a previous customer. In the .vcl-file the checkout is blocked, but this still happens. Any ideas how thats possible?

  • you can try to ban /checkout/ in magento admin also. this will work 100%

A few things to try:

  • Update your version of Turpentine, there was a recently fixed issue that may be affecting you
  • Turn off any other caching extensions - especially full page cache
  • Try turning off other cache types under Cache Management
  • Verify that Turpentine/Varnish is working correctly:
    • Do you see ESI includes working properly?
    • If you turn on debugging in the Turpentine back-end, what do you see?
    • Are there any other errors showing up in the logs?
    • Are you seeing any errors when you click the 'Apply Varnish Config' on the Cache Management screen?

  • Oh dear, I haven't even thought about updating turpentine. The reported bug seems to be exactly the same we're experiencing. I will try updating turpentine and will report back if the problem still occurs. Thanks a lot for the help @Aric
