How does Redis or Memcache(d) works with wordpress?

Socket Path

At first you have to create a cache pool with a socket path. With this path you have the possibility to configure your Wordpress. Please use this link for help.

Redis:

Log into your wordpress backed and navigate to [Menu] then to [Plugins] and by clicking on [Install] and search for the following term: "Redis Object Cache". The first result is the right plugin. Please install this plugin. After the installation you need to open the file "wp-config.php" in the root folder of the application. Add the following lines to this file right above the line "* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */":

  • define('WP_REDIS_PATH', '{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}');
  • define('WP_REDIS_PORT', '0');
  • define('WP_REDIS_DATABASE', '0');
  • define('WP_REDIS_SCHEME', 'unix');

{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH} should be replaced with the socket path that show up at [Web Hosting] and then on [Caching] in your Controlpanel.

After saving the file the caching should be active.

Memcache(d):

Log into your wordpress backed and navigate to [Menu] and then to [Plugins] and click on [Install] and search for the following term: "MemcacheD is your friend". The first result is the right plugin. Please install this plugin. After the installation you need to open the file "wp-config.php" in the root folder of the application. Add the following lines to this file right above the line "* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */":

  • $memcached_servers = array('default' => array('{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}:11211'));

{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH} should be replaced with the socket path that show up at [Web Hosting] at the submenu [Cache Pools] in your Controlpanel.

After saving the file the caching should be active.
