Question: How can I install Redis Enterprise on my server?

Answer

Installing Redis Enterprise involves several steps. Here's a basic guide to get you started. Please note that these instructions are for Unix-like systems.

Prerequisites

Before we start, make sure your system meets the following requirements:

  1. 64-bit Linux distribution
  2. Your system should have at least 30GB of free memory and 5GB of free disk space.

Step 0: Download the installation package

First, you need to download the latest version of Redis Enterprise. You can typically find this on the Redis Labs downloads page.

wget <download URL>

Replace <download URL> with the actual URL of the Redis Enterprise package.

Step 1: Extract the downloaded package

After downloading the package, extract it:

tar vxf <package filename>

Replace <package filename> with the name of the file you just downloaded.

Step 2: Run the install script

Navigate into the extracted directory and run the install script:

cd <extracted directory> sudo ./install.sh

Replace <extracted directory> with the name of the directory that got created when extracting the tarball.

Step 3: Complete the setup in the web interface

After the installation process finishes, open your web browser and navigate to: https://<hostname>:8443 (replace <hostname> with the hostname or IP of the machine where you installed Redis Enterprise).

Here you'll be guided through the setup wizard. This includes accepting the license agreement, setting up a username and password, contact details, and finally creating your first Redis database.

Please note: For detailed instructions and more specific configurations, always refer to the official Redis Labs Documentation here.
