To connect to a Dockerized Redis server, you can follow these steps:

  1. First, make sure you have Docker installed on your machine. You can download and install Docker from their official website.
  2. Pull the Redis image from Docker Hub by running the following command in your terminal:
1
docker pull redis


  1. Create a new container from the Redis image by running the following command:
1
docker run --name my-redis -d redis


This command creates a new container named "my-redis" running the Redis image in the background.

  1. Verify that the container is running by running the following command:
1
docker ps


You should see your "my-redis" container listed in the output.

  1. Connect to the running Redis container using the following command:
1
docker exec -it my-redis redis-cli


This command opens a Redis CLI session within the running container, allowing you to interact with the Redis server.


You can now use Redis commands to interact with the Dockerized Redis server. Alternatively, you can also connect to the Redis server from your application using the appropriate Redis client library and specifying the container's IP address and port number.
