Redis Queue

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: staging or production probably. Click Add Queue to start your worker.

Include php artisan queue:restart in your deploy script.
