Can't install Redis on my CentOS 6.5

  • Posted March 29, 2014

Hi everyone,

I need to install Redis on my CentOS 6.5 machine to use with my Rails application. I browsed the web to figure out how to do it and proceeded with the following commands:

wget // latest stable tar -xf redis-2.6.14.tar.gz cd redis-2.6.14 make install make test sudo make install

Until now, everything fine! But then I try running Redis finally and I get the following error:

Could not connect to Redis at Connection refused

What is going on? Can anyone help me with this?

That means Redis isn’t running. You will need to start it by running <pre>/usr/local/bin/redis-server /path/to/config</pre>. See <a href=“”></a>.
