Redis installed and looks to be running:

[me@hsredistest01 ~]$ sudo systemctl status redis
● redis.service - Redis persistent key-value database
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/redis.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)
  Drop-In: /etc/systemd/system/redis.service.d
   Active: active (running) since Mon 2019-04-22 19:03:35 +03; 34min ago
 Main PID: 8780 (redis-server)
   CGroup: /system.slice/redis.service
           └─8780 /usr/bin/redis-server

It says running port 6379 here, but when I scan the running service ports I can't see it.

[me@hsredistest01 ~]$ sudo nmap -sT -O localhost

I just want to type in browser and see something like Redis is fine message.

  • Redis is configured to listen on localhost by default because of security reasons. You could need to alter redis conf in /etc first and restaet the service – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Apr 22 at 17:46
  • @SergiyKolodyazhnyy hello yes you are right, can you check this link as well about that topic please; unix.stackexchange.com/questions/513908/… – Y3N3RRR Apr 22 at 22:19

You did not run a nmap scan that would reach port 6379, the default is to only scan 1000 of the most common open ports.

You can pass a single port to nmap: nmap -p 6379 -sT -O localhost

or you can pass a range of ports: nmap -p 1-65535 -sT -O localhost

The more ports scanned, the longer it will take.

Also, make sure your firewall allows connections to the port or nmap will not see it.

  • While it is correct about nmap, redis config is also something to consider. See my comment under question – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Apr 22 at 17:48
