The issue you are facing:

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N): Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. I want to run NC on Redis and redis works well with other apps and CLI testings. However, something is wrong in config content.

  2. Everything works well if I run NC on Memcached

'memcache.local' => '\OC\Memcache\APCu',
'memcache.distributed' => '\OC\Memcache\Memcached',
  1. But it not works with
'memcache.locking' => '\OC\Memcache\Redis',
'memcache.distributed' => '\OC\Memcache\Redis',
'redis' => [
	'host' => 'localhost', 
	'port' => 6379,
	'timeout' => 2.0,
	'dbindex' => 0, 
  1. So, to be honest, for me is not clear what exactly is wrong. I tried also to replace ‘localhost’
    a) with exact same value of ‘trusted_domains’ (installation domain),
    b) with ’ /var/run/redis/redis-server.sock’,
    c) with ‘/tmp/redis.sock’


What is wrong here?

Pleaee provide DETAILED error messages from your Nextcloud log file if you try to access Redis. Without the error messages it won’t be possible to give you any advice.

Have you seen the official docs?

On my ubuntu system the config looks different

'memcache.locking' => '\\OC\\Memcache\\Redis',
'memcache.distributed' => '\OC\\Memcache\\Redis',

See the double backslashes and I was in the need to add a password.
The array syntax is different as well.

  1. I used syntax from config.sample.php.
  2. No problem to try with double backslashes, but how looks your array syntax?

Forget about my syntax comments. There are different ways to write arrays in php.
Use the official docs and troubleshoot your issue.
