I’m looking to scale my application from a single server to multiple, so I’ve set up a brand new Redis managed database. After trying to point my Laravel app to use it I’m getting a
read error on connection error. Having scouted around the internet for the best part of a day, I’ve realised that it doesn’t seem to be a common issue. I’m running
phpredis 5.1.1 and
php 7.3.13. I’ve allowed my droplet to access the Redis instance over private networking.
config/database looks like this:
'redis' => [ 'client' => 'phpredis', 'cluster' => false, 'default' => [ 'scheme' => 'tls', 'host' => env('REDIS_HOST', '127.0.0.1'), 'password' => env('REDIS_PASSWORD', null), 'port' => env('REDIS_PORT', 6379), 'database' => env('REDIS_DB', 0), ], 'cache' => [ 'scheme' => 'tls', 'host' => env('REDIS_HOST', '127.0.0.1'), 'password' => env('REDIS_PASSWORD', null), 'port' => env('REDIS_PORT', 6379), 'database' => env('REDIS_CACHE_DB', 1), ], 'options' => [ 'prefix' => env('REDIS_PREFIX', Str::slug(env('APP_ENV', 'ENVNOTDEFINED'), '_').'_database_'), 'parameters' => ['password' => env('REDIS_PASSWORD', null)], ], ]
.env file contains the required values:
REDIS_HOST=DATABASE_URL.db.ondigitalocean.com REDIS_PASSWORD=PASSWORD REDIS_PORT=25061
I found this question, but because I’m already running later versions than the suggested fix, the answer didn’t solve my problem.
Has anyone encountered this before?
