sudo service redis-server restart
On CentOS/RHEL, you can use:
sudo systemctl restart redis

First, open the Redis configuration file in an editor:
sudo nano /etc/redis/redis.conf

pidfile parameter and note down its value. This parameter specifies the path to the Redis process ID file.
Now, kill the Redis process using the
sudo kill $(cat /var/run/redis/redis-server.pid)
Finally, start Redis again:
sudo systemctl start redis
Make sure to replace the paths and commands above with the appropriate ones for your Redis setup.
