Laravel Horizon with Docker
We simply pass the command to the Docker container and let S6 Overlay monitor the process.
- In most cases, you probably want to run this as a separate container from your web container
- If you want to run this in the same container, then you should create a custom S6 script to bring the service up and to monitor it
- Ensure that you have your
.envconfigured correctly to authenticate with Redis
- Ensure Redis is running before you attempt to connect Horizon to Redis
