Firstly, you have built a great tool.

We are trying to build a wordpress site which has 2 servers

On First we have installed nginx & php with install options 2

On the second server we installed with server option 0 & then installed the stack -mysql

Now my question where & how should redis be installed? on the first or the second? Also, how would it be configured in wordpress?

Also, if there is any guide that I can follow for installing webinoly in multiple servers for scaling purpose.

Thank you

Ideally, in a multi-server configuration, Redis should be installed in a separate server.

Currently we were only planning splitting the database. Maybe in the next step we can also split the redis cache. So if we had to on which of the server should we install redis? and is there a command inside webinoly to do the same.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Put Redis together with MySQL.

If you install Redis on every PHP server, you will have duplicate queries to MySQL and that's exactly what you are trying to avoid. In other words, two servers can do the same query to store it in their own Redis, that's why should have only one common Redis instance.

Thanks. Is there a command in webinoly to install redis or it is automatically installed with the mysql command? or should I custom install it?

Webinoly install Redis automatically after PHP, we don't have a command to install these tools alone, but it's very easy and you can do it manually:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/redis-server
sudo apt -y install redis-server php-redis
sudo systemctl enable redis-server
