Here is how to install Redis on Ubuntu 20.04 in under 2 minutes:
Step 1 - Update package index
Start by updating the package index on your system:
sudo apt update
apt update downloads the package lists from the repositories and updates
them to get information on the newest versions of packages and their
dependencies. It will do this for all repositories and PPAs.
Step 2 - Install the Redis package
Now, you can install the
sudo apt install redis-server
Step 3 - Configure Redis
Once the installation is complete, modify the Redis configuration file. Open the configuration file in your favorite text editor:
sudo nano /etc/redis/redis.conf
Next, find the line specifying the
supervised directive. The default option is
no, however, you may want to change it to
systems to manage Redis as
/etc/redis/redis.conf ... supervised systems ...
Step 4 - Restart the Redis
The final step in this journey is to restart Redis to make sure that the changes are in place:
sudo systemctl restart redis.service
Redis is now successfully installed on your system.
