@Yustum Thank you you save my time. :) @agam16 from my mind This is for testing purpose. Amazon not recommend to install everything on ElasticSearch cause problem with state image save you should create Custom AMI and run by Amazon Beanstalk again.

I was wondering the same as @agam16. This config gets redis setup initially but how do restart if it fails for whatever reason? Does it require restarting the EBS container? Also @udomsak, I think you meant ElasticBeanstalk :)

@yusam really i am very struct with redis configured in AWS elastic beanstalk. I had completed sails.js framework with redis, it is working fine in local machine. How to do make runnable in AWS EB?
Below are i tried steps.

  1. ElasticCache - created Redis instance with security group which was created in AWS EB environment instance.
  2. sails - config/session.js - In this file, i am just enabled adapter redis and provide options host and port.

But i didnt get AWS EB workable for my sails.js API. Kindly advice.
