How to setup Redis on Windows

Step 1: Download Redis

Officially Windows is not supported. But there is a well maintained port for Windows based on Redis. This can be used. Download the latest release of the Redis from here. I have downloaded Redis-x64-3.2.100.zip.

Step 2: Extract the zip file

Extract the zip to a desired directory.

Step 3: Start Redis and access it

Open a command prompt window at the Redis extract folder location and run the following command to start Redis: 
run redis-server.exe
Open another command prompt window at the Redis extract folder location and run the following command to access Redis using Command Line Interface (CLI):
redis-cli.exe
Here are a few useful Redis CLI commands:
D:\Programs\Redis-x64-3.2.100>redis-cli.exe
127.0.0.1:6379> ping
PONG
127.0.0.1:6379> keys *
(empty list or set)
redis 127.0.0.1:6379> set key1 value1
OK
redis 127.0.0.1:6379> get key1
"value1"
You can read about more about Redis CLI by visiting their website.
