Flush varnish cache by TYPO3

In order to automatically clear varnish cache by hitting “Clear frontend cache” or “Clear single page cache” you need a configured domain record as well as a varnish server configuration. These conditions are already fulfilled if you followed our “Installation”-Guide.


All requests to the varnish server are logged in backend module “Log”.
