The WebIDE was install correctly and working, I made several different scripts and projects with it.

I logged in via SSH and installed Vi and vim after restart the WebIDE stopped working and produced this error in the web browser

It looks like redis isn't started, possibly. Try manually starting it by typing 'redis-server' on the command line, and then refresh the WebIDE. Let me know if that works.

Yes running the 'redis-server' does allow me to use the WebIDE. But I have to try that every time I start up (power cycle) the system

Consolidating this issue here: #184

Please try some of the steps (ensuring you have /etc/init.d/redis-server, etc), and update that issue. They appear related. Thanks!
