Redis Cache Driver
What is Redis?

Redis is a highly efficient distributed data storage. High operation speed is guaranteed by data storage in RAM, being regularly saved on a disk, after equal periods of time or when reaching a certain number of queries

How to setup redis cache

In the OpenCart admin backend, do the following steps:
Install via Extensions > Marketplace or via Extensions > Installer > Upload

Then you need to define a few constants in config.php and admin->config.php

// Redis
define('CACHE_HOSTNAME', '');
define('CACHE_PORT', '6379');
define('CACHE_PREFIX', 'redis_');
define('CACHE_PASSWORD', '');
