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


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

This can be closed. cc @senny


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


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 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.


@axilleas great! thanks.
