Error: redis flushall not working

What's Causing This Error

If you encounter the error 'redis flushall not working,' it is likely due to a problem with either Redis server configuration or network connectivity. There could be various reasons for this issue, such as an incorrect port number or no running Redis server, leading to client communication failure and ultimately resulting in the 'redis flushall not working' error.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To address this error, consider implementing the following solutions:

  1. Check Redis server status: Ensure that the Redis server is running and listening on the correct port . You can verify that Redis has been up and running correctly by running the following command in your terminal:
redis-cli ping

If Redis is working correctly, it will return the following response:


2.Verify network connectivity: Determine whether there are any network connectivity problems between the client and the Redis server by using the command 'ping <server_ip>.' If the ping test fails, double-check network configurations and ensure that the client machine can reach the Redis server.

3.Review Redis logs: Take a look at the Redis logs to determine if there are any related error messages that could help identify and solve the issue. You may find these logs in the Redis configuration directory, typically named redis-server.log.

4.Restart Redis server: Rebooting the Redis server may help resolve the issue.

If none of these methods are successful, consult the Redis community or seek assistance from Redis support to help fix the issue.
