EDIT 11/03/2018

I ran:

varnishd -f /etc/sysconfig/varnish

I got:

Unterminated string at (input Line 96 Pos 13) DAEMON_OPTS="-a ${VARNISH_LISTEN_ADDRESS}:${VARNISH_LISTEN_PORT} \ ------------###################################################### Running VCC-compiler failed, exit 1 VCL compilation failed

My /etc/sysconfig/varnish file look like this:

# Configuration file for varnish
#
# /etc/init.d/varnish expects the variable $DAEMON_OPTS to be set from this
# shell script fragment.
#

# Maximum number of open files (for ulimit -n)
NFILES=131072

# Default log size is 82MB + header
MEMLOCK=82000

# Maximum size of corefile (for ulimit -c). Default in Fedora is 0
# DAEMON_COREFILE_LIMIT="unlimited"

# Set this to 1 to make init script reload try to switch vcl without restart.

ORIGINAL

I run varnish whit drupal, on centos. It worked just file, when suddenly it stopped working. On :

service varnish start

I get:

Starting varnish HTTP accelerator: [ OK ]

But when I check status I get :

varnishd dead but pid file exists

The logs are empty. I get no errors, and:

varnishncsa (pid 2205) is running...

I tried :

varnishd -f /etc/varnish/default.vcl

And got:

storage_file: filename: ./varnish.RvBKcH size 33193 MB. Using old SHMFILE

I couldn't find anything on that. I hope someone can help me. I couldn't find anything on this issue.

This is my deaflt.vcl:

# man page for details on VCL syntax and semantics.

Based on the error it appears that somewhere or another you have that DAEMON_OPTS... line in one of your VCL files. Perhaps you have another one getting included rather than default.vcl. Just look for the string that is being reported in any of your files.
