How do I install the cPanel Varnish Plugin?

Upon fully processing your order, UNIXY will send you an email with instructions on how to obtain the plugin package.

Here is the direct link to purchase the plugin:

Leased license with installation and SLA-based support: https://www.unixy.net/secure/cart.php?a=add&bid=5

Leased license with no installation assistance or support: https://www.unixy.net//secure/cart.php?a=add&pid=220

Owned license ($139 one-time or "lifetime" payment): https://www.unixy.net//secure/cart.php?a=add&pid=223

Simply download the package to the destination server under /usr/src/ and extract it as such:

Note: upgrade instructions are available here:

1) Download the EL5 package for CentOS 5, Red Hat 5, or CloudLinux 5 and the EL6 package for CentOS 6, Red Hat 6, or CentOS 6. And then upload it to the folder /usr/src in your server.

1) [root@varnish ~]# cd /usr/src

2) [root@varnish src]# file varnish.unixy.net-2.4.0-el5.tar.zip
varnish.unixy.net.tar.zip: Zip archive data, at least v2.0 to extract

[root@varnish src]# tar -xzf varnish.unixy.net-2.4.0-el5.tar.zip

[root@varnish src]# cd varnish.unixy.net-2.4.0-el5

[root@varnish src]# vi unixyvarnish.license # Enter the license key string in this file before proceeding

[root@varnish varnish.unixy.net-2.4.0-el5]# python installvarnish

Common Issues:

Q: Can UNIXy install the plugin on my server?
A: Yes, we can. An add-on service is available to subscribers who have their own servers on which they would like to install the plugin. You can select the Installation Add-on during the plugin purchase steps.

Q: The following message appears: Could not find a valid license file! Be sure to save the license key file unixyvarnish.license here and try again
A: create a file called unixyvarnish.license inside the varnish.unixy.net-2.4.0-el5/ directory and save the license key there.
