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:

<br />
# download and unpack the sources (see http://redis.io/download for the latest stable version)<br />
wget http://redis.googlecode.com/files/redis-2.4.5.tar.gz<br />
tar -zxvf redis-2.4.5.tar.gz</p>
<p># build<br />
cd redis-2.4.5/<br />
make</p>
<p># test<br />
# I needed to install tcl8.5 to run the tests: sudo apt-get install tcl8.5<br />
make test</p>
<p>#install<br />
sudo make install<br />
cd utils<br />
sudo ./install_server.sh</p>
<p># run the redis cli (/usr/local/bin/redis-cli)<br />
redis-cli<br />
