Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means, we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.
services: myservice: type: redis:5 persist: false portforward: false password: '' config: server: SEE BELOW
This option is pretty straightforward. Use
persist: true to persist the cache's data between restarts and rebuilds.
portforward will allow you to access this service externally by assigning a port directly on your host's
localhost. Note that
portforward can be set to either
true or a specific
port but we highly recommend you set it to
true unless you have pretty good knowledge of how port assignment works or you have a very compelling reason for needing a locked down port.
portforward: true will prevent inevitable port collisions and provide greater reliability and stability across Lando apps. That said, one downside of
portforward: true is that Docker will assign a different port every time you restart your application. You can read more about accessing services externally over here.
services: myservice: type: redis portforward: true
services: myservice: type: redis portforward: 6379
Setting a Password
Later versions of Redis require a non-blank password being set; provide a password for your redis instance using the
services: myservice: type: redis password: womprat-slayer
Note that you'll likely need to provide this password along with other Redis details to your application so it can connect to Redis. Typically this is done through environmental variables.
Do not use this option if you use a custom
redis.conf that defines a default user password.
Using a custom redis.conf
If you do this, you must use a file that exists inside your application and express it relative to your project root as shown below:
A hypothetical project
Note that you can put your configuration files anywhere inside your application directory. We use a
config directory in the below example but you can call it whatever you want such as
./ |-- config |-- redis.conf |-- .lando.yml
