Installing Redis 2.4.5 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Redis is an open-source key value store. I visited the interactive tutorial and was intrigued by the features it offers.

Here’s how I installed a local copy for further investigation:

# download and unpack the sources (see http://redis.io/download for the latest stable version)
wget http://redis.googlecode.com/files/redis-2.4.5.tar.gz
tar -zxvf redis-2.4.5.tar.gz

# build
cd redis-2.4.5/
make

# test
# I needed to install tcl8.5 to run the tests: sudo apt-get install tcl8.5
make test

#install
sudo make install
cd utils
sudo ./install_server.sh

# run the redis cli (/usr/local/bin/redis-cli)
redis-cli
