Where to find complete Redis documentation?
-------------------------------------------
This README is just a fast "quick start" document. You can find more detailed
documentation here:
1) http://code.google.com/p/redis
2) Check the 'doc' directory. doc/README.html is a good starting point :)
Building Redis
--------------
It is as simple as:
% make
Redis is just a single binary, but if you want to install it you can use
the "make install" target that will copy the binary in /usr/local/bin
for default.
You can run a 32 bit Redis binary using:
% make 32bit
After you build Redis is a good idea to test it, using:
% make test
Running Redis
-------------
To run Redis with the default configuration just type:
% ./redis-server
If you want to provide your redis.conf, you have to run it using an additional
parameter (the path of the configuration file):
% ./redis-server /path/to/redis.conf
Playing with Redis
------------------
You can use redis-cli to play with Redis. Start a redis-server instance,
then in another terminal try the following:
% ./redis-cli
redis> ping
PONG
redis> set foo bar
OK
redis> get foo
"bar"
redis> incr mycounter
(integer) 1
redis> incr mycounter
(integer) 2
redis>
You can find the list of all the available commands here:
http://code.google.com/p/redis/wiki/CommandReference
Enjoy!
