I set up a new server with Debian 8.5 testing (apache 2.4, php7, redis 2.2.8, owncloud 9.04)
As recommended by the oc documentation I use APCu for local memcaching and redis for local filelocking.
When I use redis with tcp-configuration everything works fine and without problems.
But for performance reasons and maybe security reasons I would like to use socket communication for redis as described here:
OC 9.0 Doc: Transactional File Locking
First lesson I learned: Modifying the config.php (as described in the doc) is not enough and does not work:
'memcache.local' => '\OC\Memcache\APCu',
'filelocking.enabled' => true,
'memcache.locking' => '\OC\Memcache\Redis',
'redis' => array(
'host' => '/var/run/redis/redis.sock',
'port' => 0,
'timeout' => 0.0,
Error-message: Redis server went away (I spent several hours to search a solution for this)
I then found out, that the socket-mode has to be enabled in the redis.conf under /etc/redis
But now it still doesn't work.
I then tried to add the user www-data to the group redis - to eleminate permission problems - but that didn't help either.
I finally tried to add the path of the socket to php open_basedir in VirtualHost-Container:
php_value open_basedir /var/www/owncloud/:/var/run/redis/:/tmp/:/tmp
But this didn't help either but in admin panel i then got the error message
Temporary directory /tmp is not present or writable
(...even it is mentioned in open_basedir )
So now I don't know how to solve the problem.
Can somebody please help me?
