Howto: Handle phpredis connection error

Example Code:

    $redis=new Redis();
    $connected= $redis->connect('', 6379);
    if(!$connected) {
        // some other code to handle connection problem
        die( "Cannot connect to redis server.\n" );
    $redis->setex('somekey', 60, 'some value');

I came up with the above code after reading the doc because I found out the following try/catch code doesn’t work as expected

    $redis=new Redis();
    try {
        $redis->connect('', 6379);
    } catch (Exception $e) {
    // tried changing to RedisException, didn't work either
        die( "Cannot connect to redis server:".$e->getMessage() );
    $redis->setex('somekey', 60, 'some value');

    You could do a combo of both.

    try {
    $redis = new Redis();
    $connected = $redis->connect(…);
    if (!$connected) { throw new Exception(“Can’t connect”); }
    } catch (Exception $e) {
