Varnish Config on Debian

I’ve just spent too long being very confused as to why varnish wasn’t working

I’d forgotten that  the Debian version doesn’t read the default.vcl config file by default!

You have to edit /etc/default/varnish and specify the config type you want.

I was getting the error message

Error 503 Service Unavailable

Error talking to backend
