I’ve noticed that DreamHost has some pretty good guides for installing other services and features (e.g. memcached, OPcache) on Dedicated server options.
But nothing for Varnish.
I’ve been following some of the official Varnish docs and others on installing and configuring for Ubuntu server but keep getting:
- Starting HTTP accelerator varnishd [fail]
when I attempt to start it with
sudo service varnish start
I installed it from the default Ubuntu repo:
sudo apt-get install varnish
/etc/systemd/system/varnish.service and changed the ports in the file to 80.
Can anyone advise on steps to get Varnish running on DreamHost or steps I’m missing?
