Whats happening here? Followed the digital ocean tut... but it is from 2013. all was well until the very end and then it failed. I had seen something on the forum about redis and nodebb .7 is that this? What am i doing wrong? I even tried redislabs as an external redis server, but still nodebb aborted.

It looks like your Redis version is out of date, could you run "redis-server --version" and post that here?
hey thanks for such a quick reply.
the version is 2.2.12. Whats the command to upgrade? I tried using an endpoint address from redislabs to bypass the issue but that ddnt help.

Ye, zadd (as described in the error) is a function for redis 3.x.x, since I do not know what is you use I'm going to assume a Debian based one, so this should get you on track
Ubuntu 12.04.5 x32
thanks, hopefully i can nix this error now.
soooooo, that worked.
