python – Celery failing to connect to redis in Flask

I have a flask app with celery configured inside.

This is the configuration flow:

app.common.globals.py:

from flask import current_app as app
from celery import Celery

celery = Celery()

__init__.py

from app.common.globals import celery
celery = Celery(app.name, broker=app.config['CELERY_BROKER_URL'], backend=app.config['CELERY_BACKEND_URL'])
celery.conf.update(app.config)


def create_app(config_class=Config):
    app: Flask = Flask(__name__)
    app.config.from_object(config_class)
    logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO)
    debug = app.config['DEBUG']
    if debug:
        app.logger.setLevel(logging.INFO)

    with app.app_context():
        from app.common.globals import celery

    celery = Celery(app.name, broker=app.config['CELERY_BROKER_URL'], backend=app.config['CELERY_BACKEND_URL'])
    celery.conf.update(app.config)

    
    return app

config.py

CELERY_BROKER_URL = 'redis://127.0.0.1:6379/0'
CELERY_BACKEND_URL = 'redis://127.0.0.1:6379/0'

Then where the app is running in wsgi.py


from app import create_app

app = create_app()
debug = app.config['DEBUG']


if __name__ == "__main__":
    app.run(host="127.0.0.1", port=5000, debug=debug, threaded=True)

I have a redis server up and running where I can connect to it easily:

redis-cli -u redis://localhost:6379/0                   
localhost:6379> 

The problem is apparently celery is not able to connect to redis server so it throws the warning below and tries to connect to the default amqp://guest:**@127.0.0.1:5672//: and fails.

WARNING:kombu.connection:No hostname was supplied. Reverting to default 'localhost'
  File "/User/omar/venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/kombu/connection.py", line 450, in _reraise_as_library_errors
    raise ConnectionError(str(exc)) from exc
kombu.exceptions.OperationalError: [Errno 61] Connection refused

When I print the celery instance, it shows it can read the broker url.

celery = Celery(app, broker=app.config['CELERY_BROKER_URL'], backend=app.config['CELERY_BACKEND_URL'])
celery.conf.update(app.config)
print(celery.conf)

<RESULT>

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
