Hi, I am trying to extend DataExtension, but the default values are not being displayed and any values are not being saved to the DB.


class AnalyticsConfig extends DataExtension {

  private static $db = array(
    'redisIP' => 'varchar(250)',
    'redisPort' => 'varchar(250)',
    'redisSize' => 'varchar(250)',

  public static $defaults = array(
    'redisIP' => '',
    'redisPort' => '6379',
    'redisSize' => '4832',

  public function updateCMSFields(FieldList $fields) {
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", new TextField("RedisIP", "Redis IP"));
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", new TextField("RedisPort", "Redis Port"));
    $fields->addFieldToTab("Root.Main", new TextField("RedisSize", "Redis Size"));


also, in _config.php i added

Object::add_extension('SiteConfig', 'AnalyticsConfig');

Any ideas?
