I have a rpm (redis) that I need to install on a dozen servers.
The version of redis that is available in EPEL is too old (2.4.x). The software providers do not offer a repository online that I could download.
I need to get the latest versions of either 2.6.x or 2.8.x installed (preferably 2.6.x)
I've tried the following solutions. Each has their own problems.
Compile 2.8.x from source (Doesn't scale, have to repeat 12 times)
Use redis puppet module from puppet forge
All of the puppet modules are either undocumented, or install using the old redis url's and thus are locked to older versions. The only manifest that I've got to work, installs a maximum version of 2.6.14 which has broken init scripts on Centos
- Install using ruby gems, (there are no gems for versions older than 3.x.beta )
The only other way I see to do this is make my own repo and find a place to host it. That would require that I create a web server or ftp server internally which I really don't want to do.
Surely there is an easier way to get redis 2.6.x or 2.8.x installed on multiple machines isn't there? How else could this be done?
