So I wanted to test today using Redis found here: Redis - How to install Redis server on Centmin Mod LEMP stack | Centmin Mod Community Code: yum -y install redis --enablerepo=remi --disableplugin=priorities chkconfig redis on service redis start Turned it on, followed all directions listed in the thread, installed the Redis Object Cache plugin and connected it. Monitored the output in SSH via redis-cli monitor and used the phpRedisAdmin and turned off memcached. and everything works just fine! php-fpm started up just fine. I thought Redis was not ready for php 7 yet? It works extremely well! Anyone else tried this yet?
