How To Setup Redis Object Caching For WordPress On Cloudways 2020 – WordPress Redis Cache Tutorial

Redis is a memory caching software that runs on the service. It can be used to accelerate the backend performance of your WordPress website by caching database queries and other objects. In this video, I show you how to set Redis Object Caching for WordPress on the Cloudways hosting platform. I also explain it’s benefits and why you should be using it if your host provides it.

  1. Setting up redis cache can shave several seconds off your WordPress admin panel load time especially if you're running a website that is powered by WooCommerce where you're running a lot of expensive queries. Cloudways makes this process really straightforward!

  2. Thank you for all your videos. I have a quick question. Is it ok to turn on server ngnix, whatever other server cache is available at the server level on cloud ways admin dashboard, and Swift performance all at the same time?

  3. As soon as I enable the Redis Cache, the Query Monitor plugin gets disabled and I can't turn it on anymore. As soon as I disable Object Cache I'm able to activate Query Monitor again.

  4. So what’s about memcached feature in cloud ways how we can use simultaneous? Additional question how I can know about cloudways my vps structures because I seen that use Apache ngnix varnish redis and memcached, do they put nginx front end ? and do reverse proxy ? Or use varninsh to front end and reverse proxy to nginx then redis if site is static then Apache works ? Thanks

  5. Hi Silly question here but wanted to double check, I've just moved to cloudways, on one of my applications (wordpress installs) within the server I have already got the w3 total cache plugin, will it make any difference if I go ahead and install redis cache plugin and implement it on the server level too?

    I am not quite sure if I should since have 2 caching plugins could be conflicting?

    Thanks again for your amazing tutorial

  6. Thank you, this is very helpful. I have a LearnDash website with AERO Checkout to take order. I have set up page level script optimization (perfmatters), WP Rocket, and redis but the AERO Checkout page load is still 3s++. What else should I do to make the page load below 3s?

  7. Hey. Thanks a lot for making an awesome and easy to follow tutorial! So I wish to use this on a woocommerce site. During sale hours like 50-70% off announcements, the DB just chokes because of 100s of people visiting. So I wanted to know like if like I have a Nike shoe on 70% sale on-site and people buy it like 20 pairs per minute that means, the quantity of available stock in DB will change every 4-5 seconds. Then with Redis, if Redis caches the queries, then wouldn't people be seeing the wrong number of quantities shown on page i.e. data being served from Redis rather than fresh data from DB?

  8. hi, i am using a shared hosting server from a company called itnuthosting and I do have redis selected in select PHP version. I don't know that that actually means but I tried to configure with wp manager and instead redis plugin in my WordPress but my redis plugin status showing not connected and giving the reason behind is "The PhpRedis extension is not installed." any idea how I can solve this or it's not possible from my server?

  9. Also, remember when using Redis cache it's not a replacement for a proper page caching solution while Cloudways has varnish I recommend using an additional page caching plugin to avoid hitting the server at all as much as you can. Whether you're looking to use a free plugin like Cache Enabler or a paid solution such as WP Rocket the above implementation will work with any of them.

    For W3 Total Cache users don't enable redis cache for page caching thats a quick way to waste resources, lead to cache misses and hurt your performance stick to using disk enhanced for page caching!
