Advertisements


Before you start using Redis in your PHP programs, you need to make sure that you have Redis PHP driver and PHP set up on the machine. You can check PHP tutorial for PHP installation on your machine.

Installation

Now, let us check how to set up Redis PHP driver.

You need to download the phpredis from github repository https://github.com/nicolasff/phpredis. Once you’ve downloaded it, extract the files to phpredis directory. On Ubuntu, install the following extension.

cd phpredis 
sudo phpize 
sudo ./configure 
sudo make 
sudo make install 

Now, copy and paste the content of “modules” folder to the PHP extension directory and add the following lines in php.ini.

extension = redis.so

Now, your Redis PHP installation is complete

Connect to Redis Server

<?php 
   //Connecting to Redis server on localhost 
   $redis = new Redis(); 
   $redis->connect('127.0.0.1', 6379); 
   echo "Connection to server sucessfully"; 
   //check whether server is running or not 
   echo "Server is running: ".$redis->ping(); 
?>

When the program is executed, it will produce the following result.

Connection to server sucessfully 
Server is running: PONG
