Varnish cache

  • mimbelli


    Hi all,

    I’m trying to use Varnish cache and Varnish HTTPpurge plugin along with a Buddypress and BBpress global forum installation. Everything works fine except forum pages that are not updated correctly.

    Unfortunately varnish is installed by default on my domain from my ISP so I have little or no control on its configuration. From Cpanel I have only the option to enable/disable, purge and set TTL for static and dynamic objects.
    My ISP replied to me that Varnish does not work with BBPress/BuddyPress so I have to disable it. Is it true?

    Using the plugin check status tool, for all my URL I get:

    Varnish is running but cannot cache.
    Your sever IP setup looks good. If you are using a proxy (like Sucuri or Cloudflare or Fastly) please double check that configuration and make sure to add a custom Varnish IP if necessary.
    Your site is compressing content and making the internet faster.
    Something is setting the header Cache-Control to “no-cache” which means visitors will never get cached pages.
    Something is setting the header Cache-Control to “max-age=0” which means a page can be no older than 0 seconds before it needs to regenerate the cache.

    Thank you in advance

    Hi all,

    Any feedback?




    Varnish is compatible with wordpress, but need custom conf, if you couldn’t manage the varnish configuration the best is no use it…

    I use BuddyPress with Varnish and everything works fine.
    You can set “Cache-Control” to 0 maybe for forums ?

    <?php header("Cache-Control: max-age=0"); ?>
