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)
- full GeoIP support
- 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 > 1.7 or PE/EE > 1.12
- 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.

like szalay, I don't see the Varnish button in Cache Management and do not see the admin expanded page (4th jpg showing with extension) with the Varnish settings. Please tell me how to fix this. Site launches on Monday March 26, 2012. Thanks for your attention. March 24, 2012
Hi All, :) Nice extension! THX a lot. I have a lamp server (ubuntu) and I have installed the varnish package on the server. I have installed this varnish extenson and it is OK. BUT I can't see the varnish menu and the clean varnish cache button on the ststem-gt;cache management page. Do you have any idea why? (mage CE-1.6.2) March 21, 2012
The pager in the product grid will not work correctly. Normally, the user can select a limit of product, f.ex. 30 per page. Using this module, magento forgets the limit parameter when switching the category. March 14, 2012
Thank Brandeer for the confidence to install the extension. My site loads between 10 - 13 seconds per page. In the readme, it says about setting the port to something, I made no port change. In the readme, it says to install Varnish on my linux server, I only installed the extension. Don't know how to install varnish. I have linux and assume this is the file to download https://www.varnish-cache.org/installation/redhat but there is no link to download the file. Where do I run this command? rpm --nosignature -i http://repo.varnish-cache.org/redhat/varnish-3.0/el5/noarch/varnish-release-3.0-1.noarch.rpm More guidance please. :=) March 13, 2012
Awesome extension. I have a bit of a problem. How can I set a route for homepage with 0 TTL? Either in "Disable caching for routes" or in "Cache TTL for routes" Got it working in Disable caching" with cms but I think will do it for every single cms, and I don't want that. Any ideea how to target homepage only? Thanks. February 22, 2012
Works great ! 9000req/s with my varnish when no products in cart. I'm waiting for esi support now :) February 17, 2012
Doesn't show up in admin for me with 1.6 and does not appear to be caching out of box. Any directions? Cleared all caches and re-indexed. January 21, 2012

Answer: 
No Works. i'm using: PageCache powered by Varnish Community version: 4.0.5

Open Phoenix/VarnishCache/etc and see the version VCL is 3.0

If you install varnish 4.x after you run:
varnishd -C -f /etc/varnish/default.vcl

you go see one message: "I can't read VCL ... correct your vcl file"

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.

Hi,

We're having a problem on our website with multisite. When varnish is enabled the cart is shared by people browsing from different location. Like when I add something into cart, its added into the cart of my friend as well.

Important: this doesn't happen in all of the sites. It only happens in one of 5 websites running in same magento installation. Any clue ?

Hello!

On the community edition of this module the mini search term is permanently cached. There seems to be no option in the admin to change or control it. Is there any way to deactivate the caching of this mini search block in the community edition?

If no, the module is somehow useless, because almost every shop actually has a mini search field...

Regards,
Dimitri
