To restore a Redis database, you can follow these steps:

  1. Backup your Redis database using the SAVE or BGSAVE command. This will create a dump.rdb file that contains the contents of your database.
  2. Transfer the dump.rdb file to the server where you want to restore the Redis database.
  3. Stop the Redis server by running the redis-cli shutdown command.
  4. Copy the dump.rdb file to the Redis data directory. By default, this directory is /var/lib/redis.
  5. Start the Redis server by running the redis-server command.
  6. If the Redis server fails to start, check the log file for any errors and troubleshoot accordingly.
  7. Once the Redis server is running, you can access your restored database using the redis-cli command.


Note: It's important to regularly back up your Redis database to prevent data loss. Additionally, consider using Redis Cluster or Redis Sentinel for high availability and fault tolerance.
