Install Redis on Linux

How to install Redis on Linux

Most major Linux distributions provide packages for Redis.

Install on Ubuntu/Debian

You can install recent stable versions of Redis from the official APT repository.


If you're running a very minimal distribution (such as a Docker container) you may need to install lsb-release, curl and gpg first:

sudo apt install lsb-release curl gpg

Add the repository to the apt index, update it, and then install:

curl -fsSL | sudo gpg --dearmor -o /usr/share/keyrings/redis-archive-keyring.gpg

echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/redis-archive-keyring.gpg] $(lsb_release -cs) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/redis.list

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install redis

Install from Snapcraft

The Snapcraft store provides Redis packages that can be installed on platforms that support snap. Snap is supported and available on most major Linux distributions.

To install via snap, run:

sudo snap install redis

If your Linux does not currently have snap installed, install it using the instructions described in Installing snapd.
