This is mentioned in the Trouble Shooting guide: https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlab-public-wiki/wiki/Trouble-Shooting-Guide

@DerZauberer

Well, maybe there should be a link to it then in the installation guide?

@JonathanMH

I agree this should be in the installation, because it's a commonly used debian linux version.

@axilleas is it already in the installation.md or no reason to put it there?

@axilleas

No reason to put it. If the redis is an old version, the user gets notified during

bundle exec rake gitlab:check RAILS_ENV=production

See installation.md#check-application-status. If there is an old version there appears this message

  Redis version >= 2.0.0? ... no
  Try fixing it:
  Update your redis server to a version >= 2.0.0
  For more information see:
  gitlab-public-wiki/wiki/Trouble-Shooting-Guide in section sidekiq
  Please fix the error above and rerun the checks.

Where the user is pointed to the troubleshooting wiki with instructions on how to install newer version.

@senny

@axilleas great! thanks.
