Server Setup / Varnish

Exclude URL from Varnish cache

by , , revisited on


We have by far the largest RPM repository with dynamic stable NGINX modules and VMODs for Varnish 4.1 and 6.0 LTS. If you want to install NGINX, Varnish and lots of useful modules for them, this is your one stop repository to get all performance related software.
You have to maintain an active subscription in order to be able to use the repository!

Sometimes you have that one page that needs to be excluded from Varnish cache. Here is how to do it.

Identify vcl_recv function in your VCL file (normally default.vcl).

Paste in the rule to bypass cache for particular page URL:


sub vcl_recv {
...
   if (req.url ~ "^/your-exact-url-here") {
      return (pass);
   }
...
}
