Integrating Redis into your website can significantly enhance its performance by providing a robust in-memory data structure store, used as a database, cache, and message broker. This guide will explain how to set up a Redis connection for your website hosted on Cubes Hosting.

Understanding Redis

Redis is an open-source, in-memory key-value database that supports different data structures. It's widely used for caching to reduce database load and increase website speed.


  • A website hosted on Cubes Hosting.
  • Access to Cubes Hosting control panel.
  • Basic knowledge of your website’s backend configuration.

Step 1: Install Redis on Your Server

Before configuring Redis for your website, you must install it on your server. In most cases, Cubes Hosting will have Redis available on its servers. If not, you can request installation from their support team.

Step 2: Enable Redis in Directadmin

Log in to your Directadmin control panel provided by Cubes Hosting and follow these steps:

  • Navigate to the 'Extra Features' or 'Advanced Features' section.
  • Look for the Redis management option and enable it.
  • Note the Redis server details, including the IP address and port number, usually 6379.

Step 3: Configure Redis in Your Website's Backend

The configuration process varies depending on the CMS or framework your website uses. Here are general steps for popular CMSs:

  • WordPress: Use a plugin like W3 Total Cache or Redis Object Cache. Enter the Redis server IP and port in the plugin settings.
  • Joomla: Use a caching extension compatible with Redis. Configure the extension with your Redis server details.
  • Drupal: Install the Redis module and add the necessary configuration to your settings.php file.

For custom-built sites or other frameworks, refer to their documentation for Redis integration guidelines.

Step 4: Testing the Redis Connection

After configuring, test the connection to ensure it's working correctly:

  • Check your website’s performance and speed.
  • Use Redis monitoring tools to observe cache hits and misses.
  • Look for any errors in the website logs related to Redis.

Note: Misconfiguration can lead to website errors, so ensure the details are entered correctly.


Setting up a Redis connection for your website can greatly improve its performance and scalability. By following these steps on Cubes Hosting, you can effectively integrate Redis into your website's architecture. Always test thoroughly to ensure the integration is successful and monitor regularly for optimal performance.
