Enable Object Cache in WordPress with Redis

Recommended Posts

Hello! Can you please confirm which settings should we use in order to enable Object Cache in our WordPress sites with Redis?

Following these instructions (, in our HawkHost CPanel:

  • Server Application Manager -> Redis enabled.
  • PHP Selector | extensions -> Redis active.

In our WordPress plugins, I have set up these settings:

  • Method: Redis
  • Host: /home/ourusername/.applicationmanager/redis.sock
  • Port: 0 (As HawkHost uses UNIX)
  • Default Object Lifetime: 360 seconds
  • Password: (leave blank)
  • Redis Database ID: 0

Also these options enabled:

  • Persistent Connection: ON
  • Store Transients: ON

I have tested with and But with both, right now I'm getting that Redis Extension: Disabled/Not Found, so any assistance would be really appreciated. Many thanks!
