Puppet module for installation Redis on Debian/Ubuntu

Installs init.d script /etc/init.d/redis-server

Config file goes to /etc/redis.conf

Contains definition redis_source, which allows you
to configure following parameters:

    $version - version of the redis you want to install
    $path - path where you want to install it
    $owner/$group - user/group under which redis process would be running.

Database will be saved to /var/lib/redis 


  1. cd /etc/puppet/modules/ && git clone git://github.com/zen4ever/puppet-redis.git redis
  2. Make sure that you have "path" for "exec" in your defaults, something like
     Exec { path => "/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin" }
     in the /etc/puppet/manifests/site.pp file.
  3. Include redis class in your nodes where you want to have redis installed.

    init.d script was written by Ian Lewis (http://www.ianlewis.org/en/redis-initd-script)
