In my previous post, I explained the process of installing SSL on Joomla, this time I’ll show you how to enable Redis Cache on Joomla, as Google has officially made site speed an important ranking factor and those sites that load slowly on a PC or a mobile will see their rankings drop.
Caching is one way to speed up your website.
There is a variety of caching options available out there for Joomla, Redis cache being one of the best. In this post, I’ll teach you how to install Redis in Joomla.
Install Redis on a Server
I’m using Cloudways because it makes the server installation process much easier.
Unlike a traditional host, you can install Redis with just a few clicks on Cloudways.
So, for installing Redis on the server, first navigate to the main server dashboard, and click ‘Settings & Packages’ on the left toolbar.
Now, click the ‘Packages’ tab.
Here, you will see an ‘Install’ button beside Redis, simply click it to install and enable Redis.
That’s all you have to do to set up Redis on your server.
Next, you need to enable Redis in Joomla.
Enable Redis in Joomla
Now, navigate to your Joomla Admin panel > Configurations > Global.
Click the system tab in the top menu.
Scroll down to the cache settings subheading and change Cache settings as is shown in the screenshot below.
Once done, click ‘Save & Close’ in the top menu. This will enable Redis on your Joomla site.
Congratulations! You have successfully enabled Redis on Joomla.
Wasn’t it easy?
This is because of Cloudways, which has literally boiled down the complex process of command line configuration and server-side knowledge into a two-step code-free process.
Try it out and let me know if you face any problems.
