This git repository is an example on how to have Redis on Red Hat OpenShift Express. The .openshift directory contains the necessary build action_hook to download Redis source code and build from scratch.
Running on OpenShift
Create an account at https://www.openshift.com
Create a OpenShift application (using any application name you want)
rhc app create redis ruby-1.8
(Note: ruby-1.8 is just an example)
Add this upstream polyglot repository
cd redis git remote add redis -m master git://github.com/openshift-quickstart/redis-openshift-example.git git pull -s recursive -X theirs redis master
Then push the repo upstream
That's it! Now you have simple Ruby application (in this case) with Redis server. The first deploy takes a bit longer as the necessary libraries and tarballs are downloaded to your OpenShift instance, so grab a cup of coffee and after a minute or two test that your application deployed correctly by going to
Congratulations! You're up and running with your application and Redis on OpenShift.
