We only use Redis for Object Cache (not page cache), you just have to install the Redis Object Cache plugin in WordPress and activate it.
For Page Cache we recommend FastCgi Cache (Nginx native feature), in this case Redis could show some benefits only in Multi-Server installations, for single server FastCgi is better and recommended.
FastCgi (Page Cache) + Redis (Object Cache) is a really powerful set up.
Your regular donations is what keep this project moving forward. If you like Webinoly, buy me a coffee or a beer to show support.
