How To Install phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7

Install phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7. For those of you who didn’t know, phpRedisAdmin is a simple web interface to manage Redis databases. Redis is an open-source, BSD-licensed advanced key-value store. It is often referred to as a data structure server since keys can contain strings, hashes, lists, sets, and sorted sets. Redis also supports datatypes such as Transitions, Publish, and Subscribe. ‘Redis ’ is considered more powerful than ‘Memcache’. It would be smart to bring ‘Redis’ into practice and put ‘Memcache’ down for a while.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation phpRedisAdmin on a CentOS 7 server.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: CentOS Linux or RHEL-based.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • An active internet connection.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7

Step 1. First, let’s start by ensuring your system is up-to-date.

yum clean all
yum -y update

Step 2. Install the Redis server.

If you do not have a Redis server installed, you can follow our guide here.

Step 3. Install the LAMP server.

A CentOS 7 LAMP stack server is required. If you do not have LAMP installed, you can follow our guide here. Also, install the required PHP modules:

yum install php-mysql php-gd php-ldap php-xml php-xmlrpc php-mbstring php-mcrypt curl zlib libtool-ltdl php-pdo

Create a virtual host for phpRedisAdmin:

nano /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpRedisAdmin.conf

Add the following lines:

<VirtualHost YOUR_SERVER_IP:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@yourdomain.com
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html/phpRedisAdmin/"
ServerName yourdomain.com
ServerAlias www.yourdomain.com
ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com-error_log"
CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/yourdomain.com-access_log" combined

<Directory "/var/www/html/phpRedisAdmin/">
DirectoryIndex index.html index.php
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted

Step 4. Installing phpRedisAdmin on CentOS 7.

First, Download phpRedisAdmin using Git:

git clone https://github.com/ErikDubbelboer/phpRedisAdmin.git
cd phpRedisAdmin
git clone https://github.com/nrk/predis.git vendor

You may also want to copy includes/config.sample.inc.php to includes/config.inc.php and edit it with your specific Redis configuration:

cp includes/config.sample.inc.php includes/config.inc.php

Move the directory to the virtual host location we set up earlier:

cd ~
sudo chown -R apache: ~/phpRedisAdmin
sudo mv ~/phpRedisAdmin /var/www/html

Restart the apache service for the changes to take effect:

systemctl start httpd.service
systemctl enable httpd.service

Step 5. Accessing phpRedisAdmin.

phpRedisAdmin will be available on HTTP port 80 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to http://your-domain.com/ or http://your-server-ip. If you are using a firewall, please open port 80 to enable access to the control panel.
