I have been searching for an up-to-date tutorial on how to add support for redis cache with wordpress but all i see is plugins, plugins, and plugins.

I am not a fan of plugins and try to reduce number of plugins as much as possible.

There is a tutorial on setting this up without plugin https://www.jimwestergren.com/wordpress-with-redis-as-a-frontend-cache/ but that was written in 2012, and am looking for something more recent.

  • There is no such thing as "without using a plugin" unless you want to change core files which is a total no-no. Any functionality which is not part of core can only be added as a plugin. Now, if you prefer to write one by yourself, that will be a bad idea IMHO, but it will still be a plugin. Why bad idea? because to assume that you will do it better than people that spent time and researched it is usually wrong no matter how smart you are. – Mark Kaplun Nov 11 at 6:28
  • this can be total done without a plugin...not sure if you trolling or something – uberrebu Nov 11 at 9:00
  • there are only two options, either you need integration with wordpress core in which case you need a plugin, or your question is not wordpress specific in which case this is a bad place to ask it – Mark Kaplun Nov 11 at 10:58
  • I would suggest that you give a little thought to what is it that you are asking, and emphasize it, instead of emphasizing what is it that you are not asking. – Mark Kaplun Nov 11 at 11:00
  • my point is adding redis support to wordpress should not have to be via a plugin...tutorial on adding redis support without plugin as title suggest is what am talking about..which part of that is unclear to you? – uberrebu Nov 12 at 17:57
