How do I run REDIS?

REDIS is used by Payments for storing encrypted CV2s. When running locally, a local REDIS server will also need to be running. How do we set it up and use it?

1) If 'wget' is installed, then go to 3). If 'brew' is installed, then go to 2). If 'brew' is not installed, then do this:

/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

2) Once brew is installed, do this to install wget:

brew install wget

3) Navigate to the dir where REDIS should be installed

4) Now get the files for REDIS (can check for latest version if wanted):


5) Run this: tar xzf redis-3.2.8.tar.gz

6) Run this: cd redis-3.2.8

7) Run this: make

8) Run the following to check everything is okay: make test

9) Start the server with this: src/redis-server

10) To monitor it, start a new Terminal and go to the same dir, then run this: src/redis-cli monitor

The monitoring will show the get/set commands going to the REDIS server from clients such as the Payments process.
