The "cannot shutdown redis-server" error occurs when the Redis server cannot be terminated as expected. Several factors could contribute to this issue, including insufficient privileges for the user attempting the operation, a misconfigured or corrupted Redis configuration file, background saving issues, unsaved data in memory, or an unresponsive Redis process.
To resolve the "cannot shutdown redis-server" error, you can try the following solutions:
INFOcommand. If a background saving process is active, wait for it to complete before attempting the shutdown again.
SAVEcommand to persist data to disk manually. Then try the shutdown command once more.
killon Linux or Task Manager on Windows to end the process. Be cautious when using this approach as it may lead to data loss or corruption. Always attempt a graceful shutdown first.
