Getting Started

Getting Started

  • Here’s a 30 second guide to getting started with Redis (linux only):

    $ wget
    $ tar -xzf redis-2.2.11.tar.gz
    $ cd redis-2.2.11/
    $ make
    $ ./src/redis-server

    Note: To install the dependencies on debian linux, install the software in the make section of debian install.

    And that’s it - you now have a Redis server running on port 6379…

    Alternatively just install from the Debian repositories:

    apt-get install redis-server
  • See Configuration for configuration information e.g. how to enable remote access to a Redis server.

  • To use the redis server from a python client, see python.
