Compiling Varnish from source
# Build dependencies on Debian / Ubuntu
# In order to build Varnish from source you need a number of packages installed. On a Debian or Ubuntu system these are:
sudo apt-get automake autotools-dev libedit-dev libjemalloc-dev libncurses-dev libpcre3-dev libtool pkg-config python-docutils python-sphinx graphviz
# Download the appropriate release tarball, which you can find on
# Alternatively, if you want to hack on Varnish, you should clone our git repository by doing.
git clone git://
cd varnish-cache
sh configure
# make check
# sudo make install
