Redis package is supported natively for Ubuntu distribution, so if you want to install Redis, just get straight to it.
$ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install redis-server
After installation, you might want to change binding IP addresses or port number, which can be done by editing file
port 6379 bind 127.0.0.1 192.168.0.2
Change to appropriate value that you want and restart redis server,
$ sudo systemctl restart redis-server.service
To test Redis connection, issue following command:
$ redis-cli -h IP_ADDRESS ping PONG
If you get reply as
PONG, that means Redis server is running properly.
