To enable Redis as a queue driver make sure it's installed on your server. When you use Ploi or Forge this is done automatically.
Enable Redis by setting
QUEUE_CONNECTION=redis in your
.env file. By default Redis ships with 16 databases (0-15). Each site on your server should get it's own unique database number. Use the environment property
REDIS_DATABASE for this.
Make sure you start a queue worker in Ploi or Forge for your current site. Got to the
Queue tab for your site. Set
redis as a connection instead of
database and set the current
environment to whatever your environment currently is:
production probably. Click
Add Queue to start your worker.
php artisan queue:restart in your deploy script.
