Redis 2.4.8 Install on Ubuntu 10.04

Installation commands:

$ wget
$ tar xvfz redis-2.4.8.tar.gz 
$ cd redis-2.4.8/
$ mkdir -p /opt/redis
$ make PREFIX=/opt/redis install
$ cp redis.conf /opt/redis/redis.conf
$ chown -R redis:redis /opt/redis
$ touch /var/log/redis.log
$ chown redis:redis /var/log/redis.log

Create this upstart script at /etc/init/redis-server.conf:

description "redis server"

start on runlevel [23]
stop on shutdown

exec sudo -u redis /opt/redis/bin/redis-server /opt/redis/redis.conf


Configure it, here's what I changed:

timeout 300
loglevel notice
logfile /var/log/redis.log
dir /opt/redis/

And run it!

$ sudo start redis-server
$ sudo restart redis-server
$ sudo stop redis-server
