For the last several hours, I've been working with Redis as a front-end cacher for WordPress. Within my own testing, Using it this way works VERY well. Putting up 2 blogs, exact same theme, plugins - one has Redis and the other had WP Super Cache. Redis was faster by about 100+ms in page loading on each test. PageSpeed was not effected by it and still continued to work well with it. However, using a CDN was affected by it so I had to rename the upload path to /wp-content/uploads/ to my CDN URL to the images would at least load on the CDN. PageSpeed can handle the CSS and JS which I like it better that way anyway. I installed Redis from source: Code: mkdir /tmp/redis cd /tmp/redis wget http://download.redis.io/releases/redis-3.0.0.tar.gz tar xzf redis-* cd redis-* Next step is to compile with make utility and install: Code: make make install clean Create config: Code: mkdir /etc/redis cp redis.conf /etc/redis/redis.conf By default redis-server will install in /usr/local/bin/redis-server. Check it whith whereis command: Code: whereis redis-server #redis-server: /usr/local/bin/redis-server Start server Code: redis-server /etc/redis/redis.conf After the install, I followed these instructions: Once everything was installed and working, I uninstalled the caching plugin and looked in the corner of my WP site to see if the cache was working and it was! It works and works well. Reminds me allot of Varnish which this is a good substitute for Varnish.
