You can ask us to install separate Redis instances for each use:
- Application Cache
- Full Page Cache
If you plan to use Varnish, you don't need a Redis for the Full Page Cache.
We use a Unix Socket to connect to Redis, except when your shop is hosted a server cluster.
These sockets are located here:
You can use this socket path as server or hostname in the configuration.
You can set the port to 0
Clean Redis Cache
You may run into a situation where something is broken in the Magento cache, which prevents you from using the Admin or N98-Magerun to clean it. The command below will connect directly to the Redis instance, en execute a FLUSHDB.
This command has the same effect as clearing the cache directory when you would be using a File cache.
Clean Redis Session
It is probably not a good idea to execute this on live because all visitors will lose their shoppingcart. You can use this on a Staging account during development.
Clean Redis Full Page Cache
When you are using FPC in Redis, this command will remove all cached data.
