Redis

How to use Redis?

Redis is a Key/Value storage that allows you to save data outside your database with blazing fast access. Shopware supports the usage of Redis for session and cache handling. Here is a sample of a docker setup that adds a new Redis instance to your Docker network. Just add the container and make sure its on the same network.

docker-compose.yml
version: "3"
services:
shopware:
image: dockware/play:latest
container_name: shopware
ports:
- "80:80"
networks:
- web
redis:
image: redis:5.0.6
container_name: redis
networks:
- web
networks:
web:
external: false

Now make sure you configure the Redis instance to be used either for session handling, cache handling or both.

Add the following to your ".env" file:

.env (partial)
REDIS_SESSION_HOST=redis
REDIS_SESSION_PORT=6379
REDIS_CACHE_HOST=redis
REDIS_CACHE_PORT=6379
