Redis install steps on FreeBSD

 

Install redis FreeBSD port collection:

$ cd /usr/ports/databases/redis/ && make install clean
# or with portmaster
$ portmaster databases/redis

 

===>  CONFIGURATION NOTE:

 

To setup “redis” you need to edit the configuration file:
/usr/local/etc/redis.conf

To run redis from startup, add redis_enable=”YES”
in your /etc/rc.conf.

 

===> SECURITY REPORT:
This port has installed the following files which may act as network
servers and may therefore pose a remote security risk to the system.
/usr/local/bin/redis-sentinel
/usr/local/bin/redis-cli
/usr/local/bin/redis-server
/usr/local/bin/redis-benchmark

This port has installed the following startup scripts which may cause
these network services to be started at boot time.
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/redis

If there are vulnerabilities in these programs there may be a security
risk to the system. FreeBSD makes no guarantee about the security of
ports included in the Ports Collection. Please type ‘make deinstall’
to deinstall the port if this is a concern.

===>  Cleaning for tcl86-8.6.3
===>  Cleaning for luajit-2.0.3
==>  Cleaning for redis-2.8.19
To run redis from startup, add `redis_enable=”YES”` in your `/etc/rc.conf`.
