How to install NodeBB with Redis?
I am not getting a perfect installation guide. I have tried every online tutorial, but everytime i get error. Got it working only with MongoDB, but i need Redis. Tutorial on Ubutu 16 or Centos. Kindly Help.

What errors are you getting? Post them and we will try to help.
actually, i tried to install few weeks ago, so i dont remember the exact error. But MongoDB gets installed by default if i use your given tutorial. But I need redis as it is used for page caching.
Is there any way to install and optimize varnish instead Redis?
@roy.miller just search "install redis Ubuntu" and then run ./nodebb setup but in the redis settings instead of mongo.
we will writing a detail install nodebb with redis or mongodb？
