I am using Cloudflare and enabling cache feature for my websites. I read that Redis cache is also a good caching solution for my hosting server. How if I run both for my website. Do they have any conflicts for my websites?

Hello @Kaz Wolfe ,

Cloudflare only cache your site static assets, it doesn't provide full-page caching. A website loading slowly will not load fast just by enabling Cloudflare.
That's why there are several caching system, but also several cache backend like memcached or redis.
But redis is only a noSQL database able to store keys, to use it as caching system, performance will highly depend on the configuration and the type of cache used (object-cache, full-page-cache)
