Join Jon Peck for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing the Redis key-value store, part of Learning Linux for PHP Developers.
…Redis is an open-source key value store.…It's similar to Memcash in a number of ways, but also offers the ability to…store different structures other than strings and also…provides the ability to persist data on disk.…You can learn more about Redis at redis.io.…It's also a great caching backend, and I personally use it.…Redis support is also available for every…PHP application and framework shown on this course.…Check out the appropriate project documentation for details.…
The Redis server will be running on local host on port 6379 which is the default.…Installation is really quick.…We're going to need sudo apt-get install and we're going to need the redis-server,…and the PHP extension, php5-redis.…Yes, I'd like to continue.…Once it's installed, we'll need to restart Apache, so php can use the new extension.…So sudo service apache2 restart.…The redis server is now running.…
And PHP can access it for use as a caching back end.…To verify that it's up and running, let's…connect to it using the command line client.…
