How do I install PHPRedis on my server?

To install PHPRedis on your server you will have to login as root user and follow these commands:

1. Install php-pear package:

apt install -y php-pear

2. Install redis client:

printf "no\n" | pecl install redis

3. Add extension to mods:

echo "" > /etc/php/7.3/mods-available/redis.ini

4. Symlink FPM:

ln -sf /etc/php/7.3/mods-available/redis.ini /etc/php/7.3/fpm/conf.d/20-redis.ini

5. Symlink CLI:

ln -sf /etc/php/7.3/mods-available/redis.ini /etc/php/7.3/cli/conf.d/20-redis.ini

6. Restart service:

systemctl restart php7.3-fpm.service

When you have a different PHP version like 7.2, make sure to replace the version number in the commands so it matches your version and re-run the commands.
