PHP Connection Examples

The predis package is the recommended client for Redis when using PHP.


Install predis at the command prompt if you haven’t yet:

$ composer require predis/predis
Using version ^1.0 for predis/predis
./composer.json has been created
Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
  - Installing predis/predis (v1.0.3)
    Loading from cache

predis/predis suggests installing ext-phpiredis (Allows faster serialization and deserialization of the Redis protocol)
Writing lock file
Generating autoload files


php > require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';
php > $redis = new Predis\Client(['host' => '', 'port' => 6379, 'password' => '#####']);


Create, read, update and destroy are the four basic functions of persistent storage.

php > echo $redis->set("best_car_ever", "Tesla Model S");

php > echo $redis->get("best_car_ever");
Tesla Model S

php > echo $redis->del("best_car_ever");

php > echo $redis->get("best_car_ever");
php >
