A Step-by-Step Guide Vagrant install Redis server


In this tutorial, How to use Vagrant install Redis server. Vagrant, a powerful open-source tool, allows developers to create and manage lightweight, reproducible, and portable virtual machines effortlessly.

My Environment for Vagrant install Redis server

  • Host OS: Windows 11
  • Vagrant version: 2.2.18
  • Vagrant provider: VirtualBox
  • Boxes Vagrant: rockylinux/8
  • Terminal/PowerShell
  • Installed VirtualBox

The vagrant directory and files will look like as below:

│   Vagrantfile
│       redis.conf

I created an “init-redis.sh” script to install Redis Server on Rocky Linux. I use the provisioning shell of Vagrant to deploy Redis Server on Rocky Linux.

The content script is as below:


# Install Redis
sudo dnf install -y git unzip net-tools
sudo dnf module install redis -y

sudo sysctl vm.overcommit_memory=1
echo never > sudo  /sys/kernel/mm/transparent_hugepage/enabled

#Configure Redis
sudo cp /etc/redis.conf /etc/redis.conf.orig
sudo cp /vagrant/conf/redis.conf /etc/redis.conf

sudo systemctl start redis
sudo systemctl enable redis
sudo systemctl status redis

For example, the File “redis.conf” configures Redis Server as below:

protected-mode yes
port 6379
tcp-backlog 511
timeout 0
tcp-keepalive 300
daemonize no

Create a Virtual Machine

I will navigate to my working directory. For example, the “Rocky-Redis” folder and create initialized Vagrantfile vagrant as the command below.

cd Rocky-Redis
vagrant init rockylinux/8

Configure the Virtual Machine

Edit the Vagrantfile and paste the content below

# -*- mode: ruby -*-
# vi: set ft=ruby :

Vagrant.configure("2") do |config|

  config.vm.box = "rockylinux/8"
  config.ssh.insert_key = false  

  config.vbguest.auto_update = false
  config.vm.define "redisserver" do |redisserver|
    redisserver.vm.hostname = "devopsroles.com"
    redisserver.vm.network "private_network", ip: ""
    redisserver.vm.network "forwarded_port", guest: 6379, host: 6379
    redisserver.vm.provision "shell", 
     path: "C:\\MyData\\Vagrant_VMS\\Projects\\Vagrant\\Rocky-Redis\\shell\\init-redis.sh"



Deploy Redis Server on Rocky Linux

Use the command below to create and configures guest machines according to your Vagrantfile.

vagrant up

Finally, we will connect to the Redis server.

vagrant ssh redisserver

The output terminal as below

Vagrant install Redis server


You’ve successfully installed the Redis server on a virtual machine using Vagrant. With this setup, you can now develop and test your Redis-dependent applications in an isolated and portable environment.

Vagrant’s ease of use and versatility make it an invaluable tool for any developer’s toolkit. I hope will this your helpful. Thank you for reading the DevopsRoles page!
