To migrate data from Laravel's default file session driver to Redis, you can follow these steps:

  1. Update your config/session.php file to use the Redis session driver. Change the driver option to 'redis' and update the connection option to use your Redis connection configuration.
  2. Update your .env file to include the necessary Redis connection configuration, such as the host, port, password, and database.
  3. Run the following command to migrate your existing session data to Redis: php artisan session:table php artisan migrate This will create the necessary database table for Redis session storage.
  4. Optionally, you can run the following command to clear your existing session data: php artisan session:clear
  5. Restart your Laravel application to apply the changes.


After completing these steps, your Laravel application will start using Redis for session storage. Existing session data will be migrated to Redis, and new session data will be stored in Redis going forward.
