Just a few tips based on your situation
- It’s ideal not to have any sort of caching in a Development environment as it tends to hinder work
- If you create a copy of your Production Site that already runs Redis, you should always strip out the Redis Caching in
app/etc/env.php in the Dev copy (see below)
- After amending the Base URL in the database, be sure to clear the Magento cache
- Depending on your store setup, you may have multiple
base_url entries in your
core_config_data table - Therefore, it’s easy to overlook them
Remove Redis configuration from Magento
Running the Redis commands that configure Magento is a one-way process. In order to “undo” the changes, you’ll need to amend the
app/etc/env.php file. What you’re looking to do is strip out the Redis references.
Be careful, editing the wrong parts will break the site - And pay attention to those pesky commas.
To help you work out what needs removing, here is a copy of the
app/etc/env.php file before Redis is added:
'backend' => [
'frontName' => 'my_database_url'
'install' => [
'date' => 'Mon, 05 Aug 2019 19:04:55 +0000'
'crypt' => [
'key' => 'my_magento_key'
'session' => [
'save' => 'files'
'db' => [
'table_prefix' => '',
'connection' => [
'default' => [
'host' => 'localhost',
'dbname' => 'my_database_name',
'username' => 'my_database_username',
'password' => 'my_database_password',
'model' => 'mysql4',
'engine' => 'innodb',
'initStatements' => 'SET NAMES utf8;',
'active' => '1'
'resource' => [
'default_setup' => [
'connection' => 'default'
'x-frame-options' => 'SAMEORIGIN',
'MAGE_MODE' => 'production',
'cache_types' => [
'config' => 1,
'layout' => 1,
'block_html' => 1,
'collections' => 1,
'reflection' => 1,
'db_ddl' => 1,
'eav' => 1,
'config_integration' => 1,
'config_integration_api' => 1,
'full_page' => 1,
'translate' => 1,
'config_webservice' => 1,
'compiled_config' => 1,
'customer_notification' => 1,
'vertex' => 1
It should be pretty simple to work out what needs removing. Don’t try to copy and paste this into your server thought because some details won’t be compatible.
