Learn about Redis.


Download Redis:

Version number is not important, this is just the general rhythm:

cd ~/Downloads
tar xvfz redis-3.0.6.tar.gz
cd redis-3.0.6/
make test
cd src

If you get an error about TCL, try this:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install tcl

You can also do this to start redis as a service (that is keep it running all the time), but I would not take this step yet. This is just an fyi:

/etc/init.d/redis_6379 start
