justinclayton/redis — version 1.1.0 May 1st 2014

Build Status


This module installs a redis server and manages the service, providing a very simple config. It has been tested for RHEL/CentOS as well as Ubuntu using rspec-system.


If you're using librarian-puppet, add a line to your Puppetfile:

mod 'justinclayton/redis', '1.x'


include redis

If you are using RHEL/CentOS and want to pull the package from somewhere besides EPEL, then use this syntax:

class { 'redis':
  enable_epel => false,

Config options for redis are not exposed to the module. However, you can supply your own ERB template for the config by using this parameter:

class { 'redis':
  template_path => 'myownstuff/redis.conf.erb'
