Overview

PageCache powered by Varnish

Now: Free Community Version available under OSL license! Note that the free version is provided as is. For support please subscribe to the Enterprise version of the module.

Make your Magento store fly - with transparently integrated Varnish Cache! Blazing fast response times and lower server load during peak times making your Magento store 100x faster.

The PageCache module allows you to control your Varnish Cache instance from the Magento backend to trigger purge requests for single stores or content types. It also prevents caching of store pages containing customer information like shopping carts or logins.

No more worries about huge marketing campaigns or maniac crawlers: Varnish Cache will mitigate any peaks so your Magento store can care about the buyers and transactions!

The PageCache module has been architectural certified by Varnish Software to ensure highest quality and reliability for Magento stores.

 

Features:

- Allows full page caching of Magento store frontends with Varnish
- Prevent caching of pages containing custom information (these pages are cacheable in Enterprise version of the module, see below)
- Configure request paths (controller, action) to be excluded from caching
- Manually clean caches for single store views or content types or use automatic cleaning on object saving
- Maintain several Varnish instances from the Magento backend
- Set TTL for content pages per store view and controller actions
- Support for design exceptions
- Easily deactivate caching for certain Magento modules
- Enable debug mode to analyse any issues
- Ready to go configuration file (VCL) for Varnish Cache 3.0

 

Features for Enterprise Version:

- Varnish ESI support for dynamic page blocks (customizable)
- supported ESI blocks: mini cart, last viewed and compared products, top links, welcome message, compare list and wishlist
- Crawler for cache heating

Click here to check out the Enterprise Version in our Magento Demo Store.

 

Requirements:

- Magento CE > 1.5.1 or PE/EE > 1.9
- Installed Varnish instance(s) > 3.0

 

Known issues:

- "Recently Viewed Products" box is not supported in the community version of the module
- Logging and statistics will be fragmentary (Varnish won't pass cached requests to the webserver or Magento)

 

PageCache powered by Varnish is available as Community Version under the OSL. An Enterprise Version including additional features like a page crawler to keep your Varnish Cache hot and support is also available as subscription.

We can't get this going! We're probably missing something, can anybody help, please? So far we have : - installed&confiured Varnish on port 83 and different vcl file name - created a phoenix.vcl file inside /etc/varnish - same contents as provided with extension - installed&enabled extension, with server IP 127.0.0.1 and port 83. Currently all requests are passed to nginx, and Varnish is working, but won't be bothered at all! October 8, 2012
I have installed this extension on my Magento CE 1.7.0.2, which is hosted on a dedicated server running CentOS 6.3 64-Bit, using Varnish Cache Server version 3.0.3. Everything is working great, I would say cached pages are being served at least 100x faster if not more. October 2, 2012
installed in 1.6.2 and is working very good no issues. October 2, 2012
"Fatal error: Call to a member function generateDesignExceptionSub() on a non-object in app/code/community/Phoenix/VarnishCache/Model/Observer.php on line 303" Line 303: Mage::getSingleton('varnishcacheenterprise/vcl') - there is no such model / php file in the extension package. September 26, 2012
If you have a bitcoin address please tell me. I am going to donate. Usually I do not like to pay for software but this extension let my store fly! It is really a good extension. Magento is usually to slow without varnish. Long site load is not good for increasing sales. So again a big thank you! September 22, 2012
Any word on compatibility with CE 1.7.0.2? September 11, 2012
it's perfect ! Thanks for your sharing August 19, 2012
Hi, I started yesterday with testing this extension. It works very fast, so thank you very mutch. Ik have only one problem at te moment. When I log In to Magento and log out agen. The NO_CACHE cookie issn't removed. How can I fix this? Best regards, Otto Smittenaar August 15, 2012
In the overview its mentioned as "Recently Viewed Products" box is not supported Does it mean "Recently Viewed Products" will not be cached or "Recently Viewed Products" will not work at all Thanks, Moses August 11, 2012

In your release notes, you mention an ESI release in Q1/12 or Q2/12. Looking at your reease notes you mention "Cache-Control:s-manage=x", is that the ESI integration?

Hello,

I try to uninstall this Extension. I've uninstalled it in Magento-Connect, but not all folders was deleted.
Then I've deleted them manually, but now I can not start my shop anyway. I get follows Errors:

a:5:{i:0;s:62:"[varnishcache/observer] (Phoenix_VarnishCache_Model_Observer).";i:1;s:1464:"#0 /usr/local/www/(...)/app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Config.php(1358): Mage::throwException('[varnishcache/o...')

I've searched whole folder with "find" for "varnish", but I can not found any file.

Hi,

Do you have any plans to add cache warmer/primer functionality to the extension? It would be a great feature to be able to click a button in the System >> Cache Management section and be able to have a script crawl the site to prime the cache after a change.
