Anyone know how to connect to the Managed Redis Database from a Python app running inside DigitalOcean Kubernetes? The error I keep getting is Name or service not known.


import redis

redis.StrictRedis(host=redis_host, port=int(redis_port), password=redis_password, ssl=True)

Hi there!

You should ensure that you add the DOKS cluster as a Trusted Source (In your DigitalOcean Control Panel: go to the cluster –> Settings –> Edit Trusted Sources)

After that, you should be able to connect to your database.
