Nitro comes with an easy way to setup and configure Redis for local testing.
# Enabling Redis
To enable Redis in Nitro, run the following command:
nitro enable redis
Nitro will then prompt you to
apply the changes. After the changes have been applied Redis will be available at
# Using Redis
To use Redis in your Craft project you can configure your component to use the following settings:
The port 6379 will always be the port to use when in a sites container, even if you override the default port using an environment variable.
# Disabling Redis
Removing Redis is as simple as enabling the service. Simply run
nitro disable redis and
apply the changes. The Redis service will be removed from Nitro and your hosts file.
# Overiding Redis Default Ports
Make sure the Redis service is not enabled before overriding the variables.
By default, Redis uses port 6379 but this port may collide with another service on your machine so Nitro includes an easy way to overide the ports. You can set the following environment variables in your terminal shell to override the defaults.
Changing these ports only affects the ports on the host machine (aka 127.0.0.1:port) and does not change the internal port used to connect to Redis from a Craft installation/container.
