On my (new) mac I can use spork and redis seems to be already running.
However on my Ubuntu system (11.10) I get
Connection refused - Unable to connect to Redis on localhost:6379 (Errno::ECONNREFUSED)
I can get around this with redis-server which start redis as a foreground process in that window.
How can I have redis-server always be running on my Ubuntu ? i.e. through reboots
I thought about putting redis-server in my .bashrc but I don't want a new redis server started with each new terminal window. Could it go in my .bash_login ?
