Better WP Varnish
[resolved] Need help getting this plugin to work (2 posts)

    Hi there. This plugin seems to be exactly what I need, but unfortunately I can't get it to work.

    I've installed and configured the plugin as per instructions.

    However, each time I add a new post, or use the Clear All link from the Admin bar, (haven't tried adding comments etc), I get the message "ERROR: Could not clear cache. Contact your server administrator if this error persists." and no objects are purged from the cache.

    Just to be clear, in the plugin configuration, I've entered the IP and port of the Varnish admin interface. I can see network traffic going there as expected when I publish a post or use the Clear All link.

    Where should I look to debug this further? Does my Varnish config need any changes?

    I'm using WP 3.5 and Varnish 3.0.3 btw.

    Thanks for reading

    Ok, I found what I did wrong - in the plugin configuration, I had to enter the IP and port of the Varnish server where client requests go, not the admin interface.

    Everything now works as expected. Thanks for the great plugin!
