Managed Redis Database and WordPress

I’ve setup a Redis cluster trough DigitalOcean Managed Databases. It’s up and running. I have a WordPress website which I’d like to connect to the cluster.

I’ve installed “Redis Object Cache” ( )

I’ve setup the following defines in my wp-config.php:

define( 'WP_REDIS_HOST', 'my-private-do-hostname');
define( 'WP_REDIS_PORT', '25061');
define( 'WP_REDIS_PASSWORD', 'my-password');
define( 'WP_REDIS_SCHEME', 'tls');

I’ve added my droplet to be a allowed on the private network. But the plugin keeps saying:

Status:	Not Connected
Client:	PhpRedis (v3.0.0)

So it stays unconnected.

Anyone got this up and running using WordPress?
