Redis - Undefined index: driver

Posted 10 months ago by elliotk


I am trying to get up and running with Redis for the first time. I'm using Forge, and currently, all my caching is to file. I thought it was as simple as changing the CACHE_DRIVER but perhaps I am wrong?

I ssh in to my server to check for Redis

[email protected]:~$ redis-cli ping

Seems Redis is running.

So i update my CACHE_DRIVER=redis

It then blows up

ErrorException (E_NOTICE)
Undefined index: driver

I have checked my cache.php seems to be ok

'redis' => [

            'client' => 'predis',

            'default' => [
                'host' => env('REDIS_HOST', 'localhost'),
                'password' => env('REDIS_PASSWORD', null),
                'port' => env('REDIS_PORT', 6379),
                'database' => 0,


And I have installed predis too via composer require predis/predis

Have I missed something obvious?
