Composer Installation

To install Object Cache Pro using Composer, you’ll need your organization’s license token, which was emailed to you after signing up.


Before getting started, be sure to uninstall all existing object cache plugins, such as Redis Object Cache and WP Redis.

Additionally, if a /wp-content/object-cache.php drop-in exists, delete it.


First, you’ll need to authenticate with your token to access your Composer repository:

composer config --auth token <LICENSE-TOKEN>;

Alternatively, you can put an auth.json in your projects’ repository:

  "http-basic": {
    "": {
      "username": "token",
      "password": "<LICENSE-TOKEN>"

You may also use the COMPOSER_AUTH environment variable:


Repository & Package

Next, add your organization’s own repository to your projects’ composer.json file:

  "repositories": [
      "type": "composer",
      "url": ""

Then install the Object Cache Pro package:

composer require rhubarbgroup/object-cache-pro


Now you’ll need to set up your configuration, for more details see the configuration guide.

Be sure to add your organization’s license token to your wp-config.php file to receive future updates:

define('WP_REDIS_CONFIG', [
    'token' => '<YOUR-TOKEN>',
    // ...


Finally, let’s activate the plugin and enable the object cache drop-in.

# activate the plugin
wp plugin activate object-cache-pro

# enable the object cache drop-in
wp redis enable

Then make sure everything works by calling wp redis status.

That’s it! 🚀🎉


If your site has an automated/scripted deployment process, follow the deployment guide to keep your object-cache.php drop-in up-to-date.
