I am trying to install redis, according to the instructions here : https://redis.io/download, but getting the error :
Creating Server TCP listening socket *:6379: bind: Address already in use
when I run command
ps -ef|grep redis
i see :
nomi 1168 947 0 2434 ? 00:00:00 grep --color=auto redis
kill 1168 where 1168 is my PID and the process is not killed:
"bash: kill: (1168) - No such process"
next time i run the command
ps -ef|grep redis i get diffrent PID number for example :
How can I remove this process?
ps -ef | grep redisis simply showing the grep command, not a
redisprocess. By the time you try to kill it, it has already stopped running. It appears that you have some other process listening to power 6379. Try
sudo lsof -i -P -n | grep LISTENto see what is using that port.
sudo lsof -i -P -n | grep 6379to check if something is attached to that particular socket
