To use Redis cache in Laravel, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Install Redis server on your system.
  2. Install the predis/predis package using Composer by running the command composer require predis/predis.
  3. Configure Laravel to use Redis as the cache driver in the config/cache.php file. Set the default value to redis and update the redis array with the Redis server details.
  4. Use the Cache facade in your Laravel application to cache data in Redis. You can store data in the cache using the put() method and retrieve data from the cache using the get() method.
  5. You can also use the remember() method to store data in the cache only if it is not already present, and the forget() method to remove data from the cache.
  6. To clear the entire cache, you can use the flush() method.


With these steps, you can easily use Redis cache in your Laravel application to improve performance and reduce database load.
