Installing Redis-x64–3.2.100 on Windows and Running Redis Server

In this tutorial I am explaining how to install the Redis server as a local server to your Windows machine. Here this is a full article about Installing and Running in very simple steps.

You can download a moderately out-of-date precompiled version of Redis for 64-bit Windows from this GitHub page: https://github.com/MicrosoftArchive/redis/releases/download/win-3.0.504/Redis-x64-3.0.504.msi

By clicking this link you will get a .msi file which is a Windows installer. Now go to your Downloads folder and find this file.

Now click on that file and install Redis.

First, You need to run this file. Click the Run button.

Then Click Next,

Accept the terms in the License Agreement and Click Next,

Now Make sure to tick the “Add the Redis installation folder to the PATH environment variable”. And click Next,

Now it will give you a default port to the server, Just Click Next(If you want to change the default running port, you can change it here),

Now the system will ask to set the memory limit for the Redis server(default 100MB given). You can just change the memory limit if you want and click Next Button,

Now continue the installation process. Click the Install button,

After all click the Finish button to finish installation process.

Congratulations!. You have almost installed the Redis server. Now let’s talk about How to Run the Redis server.

Step 1

Now open up the Windows Services console and start the Redis service. For the first time you can see it is running.

Step 2

If you want to run the Redis server from the terminal use this way.

Redis Server should have installed to C:\Program Files\Redis. There you’ll find a .exe file called redis-server.

Now open a command line and enter this command, You can see Redis server running in the standalone mood with this User Interface.

redis-server

Your Redis server started to run.

Now you can monitor the updates and changes in the Redis server by this command.

redis-cli monitor

These are the basic steps to install and run your Redis server locally in your machine. I hope you will get an idea about how to run Redis Server.

Thank You!
