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

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 Joomla. Please use this link for help.

Redis:

Log into your joomla backend and navigate to [System] --> [Global Configuration] --> [System]. Please set the following configuration at the section "Cache Settings":

Cache: On - conservative Caching
Cache-Handler: Redis
Platform Specific Caching: No
Cache Time: 15
Persistent Redis: Yes
Redis Server Host: {{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}}
Redis Server Port: 0
Redis Server Authentication: leave empty
Redis Database: 0

{{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}} should be replaced by the socket path in your controlpanel at [My Hosting] --> [Caching] --> [Redis / Memcached] --> [Manage]. After a click on the save button on the left upper corner the caching should be active.

Memcache(d):

Log into your joomla backend and navigate to [System] --> [Global Configuration] --> [System]. Please set the following configuration at the section "Cache Settings":

Cache: On - conservative Caching
Cache-Handler: Memcached (Experimentell)
Platform Specific Caching: No
Cache Time: 15
Persistent Memcached: Yes
Memcached Compression: No
Memcached Server: {{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}}
Memcached Port: 11211

{{YOUR_SOCKET_PATH}} should be replaced by the socket path in your controlpanel at [My Hosting] --> [Caching] --> [Redis / Memcached] --> [Manage]. After a click on the save button on the left upper corner the caching should be active.
