Configuring a Redis password enables one of its two built-in security feature - the auth command, which requires clients to authenticate to access the database. The password is configured directly in Redis's configuration file, /etc/redis/redis.conf, which you should still have open from the previous step.
Scroll to the SECURITY section and look for a commented directive that reads:
vi /etc/redis.conf # requirepass foobared Uncomment it by removing the #, and change foobared to a very strong and very long value.
service redis restart

$CLIEXEC -h $HOST -p $REDISPORT -a $PW shutdown
To login Redis with password, use the command below:
