I am looking for latest step-by-step instructions for first time setup for implementing RedisSessionStateProvider

Mark Jones 1 Reputation point

I am trying to setup for the first time Azure Redis Session State Cache for .Net web applications running the .Net Framework version 4.6.1


I see that the RedisSessionStateProvider uses .Net Framework 4.6.2

Does anyone know of any links for step-by-step instructions for installing the RedisSessionStateProvider on a local machine that uses an Azure Redis Cache?

I will be doing this in a DEV/UAT environements after i get it working locally, but so far i cannot find anything useful about how to actually accomplish the goal of installing the RedisSessionStateProvider and wiring it up so that web apps actually use it for session management.

Thanks for your help.
