What is the recommended way to install redis? Is it

yum install php-pecl-redis as I can see here: phpredis/phpredis
[I can also see a pecl-redis package at WHM > Software > Module Installers > PHP PECL > redis search > redis (5.2.2) ]

Or something like this as I can see here: How To Install Redis on cPanel - TecAdmin

yum install epel-release
yum install redis
systemctl enable redis
systemctl start redis
/opt/cpanel/ea-php72/root/usr/bin/pecl install igbinary igbinary-devel redis (to enable for php 7.2 for example)

Its not correct because I think the best way (and correct) is put epel.repo in mode and install with option --enablerepo=epel
If epel is enable and yum is not properly configured, some time system can broke with epel packages.

Is my experience after 15 years with WHMC/cPanel

Thanks for those details. That article isn't something under cPanel's control so I don't have a way to get that updated on my end. You may want to reach out to the creator of that site to see if they are willing to make changes.

@bonny3 - instead of "install" you can use the "uninstall" command to remove those.
Ok it works,
Thanks! :)
I would like to know when I install if these values should be set to (no) or should (yes)

enable igbinary serializer support? [no] :
enable lzf compression support? [no] :
enable zstd compression support? [no] :

Just adding this for anyone else who is looking to set this up. I've also added the instructions to install the cpanel plugin for redis as well. Login and run in terminal or via SSH


for CentOS 6/RHEL 6

rpm -ivh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-6.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
yum -y install redis --enablerepo=remi --disableplugin=priorities
chkconfig redis on
service redis start
for CentOS 7/RHEL 7

rpm -ivh https://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/epel-release-latest-7.noarch.rpm
rpm -ivh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-7.rpm
yum -y install redis --enablerepo=remi --disableplugin=priorities
systemctl enable redis
systemctl start redis

Installing the Redis PHP extension for all available versions of PHP.
Copy and paste the entire block into SSH, don't do line by line.

for phpver in $(whmapi1 php_get_installed_versions|grep -oE '\bea-php.*') ; do
cd ~
wget -O redis.tgz https://pecl.php.net/get/redis
tar -xvf redis.tgz
cd ~/redis* || exit
/opt/cpanel/"$phpver"/root/usr/bin/phpize
./configure --with-php-config=/opt/cpanel/"$phpver"/root/usr/bin/php-config
make clean && make install
echo 'extension=redis.so' > /opt/cpanel/"$phpver"/root/etc/php.d/redis.ini
rm -rf ~/redis*
done

/scripts/restartsrv_apache_php_fpm

INSTALL CPANEL PLUGIN


git clone GitHub - cruzehost/redis_cpanel: Redis management plugin for cPanel


As root, do the following:
cd /path/to/plugin
chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh

Are these still the proper commands to run to install Redis on Cpanel? If I use another version of PHP i just change the "ea-php72" to "ea-phpxx", right?

Thanks

Also we experienced issues with Redis, as memory mapping in redis itself shares it between each site. So when we had it enabled customers would get at times other sites content. Hence we removed it immediately.

This was years ago though. Other panels has better integration of Redis where they seperate it like litespeed does with "IDs". However then again with memcached I think is better for cpanel.
