Redis also strongly recommends transparent_hugepage being disabled (and tells you so in the logs on startup if it's not)

sudo sh -c "echo 'never' > /sys/kernel/mm/redhat_transparent_hugepage/enabled"

I have a problem here with the CentOS release 6.6 (Final) and Redis version 3.0.0

WARNING: The TCP backlog setting of 511 cannot be enforced because /proc/sys/net/core/somaxconn is set to the lower value of 128

then to solve that:
add at /etc/sysctl.conf file, this line:

net.core.somaxconn=65535

after run:

sysctl -w net.core.somaxconn=65535

@danielrvt: did you also add the remi repo? Did you use root (or sudo)? I just ran this on a CentOS install and the three lines as root and got it installed:

rpm -Uvh http://download.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/x86_64/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh http://rpms.famillecollet.com/enterprise/remi-release-6.rpm
yum -y --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install redis

What is missing by the Install of the PHP redis extension, is that you should add "extension=redis.so" to your php.ini file.

// , Unless you want to update all of your packages to the Remi versions the next time you do a $ sudo yum update, I recommend disabling the `/etc/yum.repos.d/remi.repo``.

I am trying this on Centos 6.7 .
redis-server starts, but my install seems to have missed something.

# chkconfig --add redis
error reading information on service redis: No such file or directory

What is chkconfig not finding?

The command yum --enablerepo=remi,remi-test install php-redis doesn't work for PHP 5.5.
This works:

yum -y install php55w-pecl-redis

An info for everyone using these guidelines to install Redis. The IUS repository has more uptodate redis packages. I would recommend using these when installing Redis on CentOS 6. The package redis32u installs the server, an init script and a standard config at /etc/redis.conf. The only thing you need to do after installing the package is activate the service with: chkconfig redis on

Your phpRedis installation doesn't work with php 5.6

This work.
Install Redis 2.2.8 for PHP 5.6

Using Centos 7.0 and EasyApache 4, you can’t install Redis 2.2.8 for PHP 5.6
Easiest workaround is to use shell and following command:
pecl install channel://pecl.php.net/redis-2.2.8

Once it finishes installation, you should see the following lines:
Build process completed successfully
Installing '/opt/cpanel/ea-php56/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/redis.so'
install ok: channel://pecl.php.net/redis-2.2.8
configuration option "php_ini" is not set to php.ini location
You should add "extension=redis.so" to php.ini

ref: http://www.techsoar.com/install-redis-2-2-8-for-php-5-6/

Command for test phpredis is work

php -r "if (new Redis() == true){ echo \"OK \r\n\"; }"

Oh man. 46 forks. Which one to choose? Of the forks. 15 modified. 1 with 9 stars and 19 updates, with a tutorial for CentOS 7 linked by a user who was active on GitHub in the last day. Followed those instructions, which had a number of manual steps automated with comment from @vortexau on using the install utility script shipped with the release I built (redis-3.0.4).
