Installation

  1. Run pip install django-redis-sessions or alternatively download the tarball and run python setup.py install,

For Django < 1.4 run pip install django-redis-sessions==0.3

  1. Set redis_sessions.session as your session engine, like so:

    SESSION_ENGINE = 'redis_sessions.session'
    
  2. Optional settings:

    SESSION_REDIS_HOST = 'localhost'
    SESSION_REDIS_PORT = 6379
    SESSION_REDIS_DB = 0
    SESSION_REDIS_PASSWORD = 'password'
    SESSION_REDIS_PREFIX = 'session'
    
    # If you prefer domain socket connection, you can just add this line instead of SESSION_REDIS_HOST and SESSION_REDIS_PORT.
    
    SESSION_REDIS_UNIX_DOMAIN_SOCKET_PATH = '/var/run/redis/redis.sock'
    
  3. That's it:

See: django-redis-sessions on pypi
