    It asks to be able to foresee the installation of varnish and its update from the Plesk panel

    Magento 2 works great with varnish but it won't work with nginx caching. I read somewhere along the github repo it's because it doesn't provide a way to invalidate cache like varnish.

    So in this case nginx caching is not a proper replacement

    "Edge sides include ESI can be achieved via Varnish cache sitting between nginx and apache." - YES -pls!

    i for one am new to plesk and docker, i would be lost on how to test it up, but to have the option to run it like i can ran nginix within the webspace or like redis from php settings would be great.

    Also note Having Varnish hits, it doesn't hit your app at all. Something like redis etc is still slow.
    Still having both Varnish, redis can be optional.

    Edge sides include ESI can be achieved via Varnish cache sitting between nginx and apache.
    Thus nginx will terminate ssl, full cached page if found on Varnish will be served directly. Cache miss will be serviced by apache.
    This cannot be achieved via nginx + apache.
    This test case is important for many business cases like magento, high traffic full page cached sites etc. Currently only Centos webpanel supports it and cpanel has a third party addon.
    Also Varnish has VMODS and some are pretty essential like say, Geoip module.
    Plesk dev can test Varnish , and can think to provide is as optional. Varnish is not everyone's cup of tea, still It does have strong business case like magento. It's essential for many clients now, thus having it optional does seems very useful. As for support part, plesk should focus on just the installation and ease to use it and basic funtion. Configuration support is out of scope and community or Internet can provide help.

    Varnish cache is a full page cache. Nginx in Plesk is not configured to use caching. Implement Varnish or enable cache in Nginx.

    We love 12.5 but are replacing with cPanel solely because of not having Varnish.
    And those who claim you don't need it etc - what do you know what I need? If I want it, if I think it helps my site, that is my prerogative and my business. There are arguments for both sides, there are believers on one, believers on the other. But there is no denying that many want it and are trying to hack-install it on Plesk 12. A quick google will tell you so. The people HAVE spoken - it IS needed.

    I see plesk 12.5 has many options for nginx and php-fpm now in relation to php version.

    I would still keep my vote on varnish as i think it would be good for people with really badly configured servers to get better performance easily. ;)

    Ps this would be good for me instance. Nginx PHP needs php 5.3. Getting seriously old. Will be updating to newest magento that needs 5.4 Min. I would have the option of placing Varnish infront of apache and using any php verison i needed. Same for many other apps.

  • H.K commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    As magento 2.0 will feature varnish 4 compatibility, this could be a good option, to run varnish in front of nginx or apache. Or both would be good options.

    Benchmarks i have seen have not shown varnish to be that much faster than nginx for magento, but im pretty sure this is a feature many people want and it maybe better in other bench marks.

    Myself i would maybe not use varnish, as my servers runs amazingly with nginx. But it would be a great tool to run infront of apache giving access to more php versions for customers that need it etc and giving them a powerful caching front end, giving plesk more versatility and appealing to more customers.
