How can I test if a cookie starts with SESS* in the Varnish config file. I want all requests to hit the server if this cookie is set. Is it a regular regex?


Yeah, just use a regex in vcl_recv. Something like:

if (req.http.Cookie ~ "(^|;\s*)SESS") {
  • I already have something like: if (req.http.Cookie ~ "(VARNISH|DRUPAL_UID)") { return (pass); }. Should I just add this afterwards? – Eduard Luca Jul 25 '12 at 21:11
  • Yeah that'll work. – Pax Jul 26 '12 at 13:58
