I still see the issue that the /var/run/redis not being created with the latest rpm as well Please find the screenshot below [root@ES-0 policybased-rules]# yum list | grep redis redis.x86_64 3.2.12-1.el6 @epel php-nrk-Predis.noarch 0.8.6-1.el6 epel php-pecl-redis.x86_64 2.2.8-1.el6 epel php-redis.x86_64 2.2.2-5.git6f7087f.el6 epel python-redis.noarch 2.0.0-1.el6 epel uwsgi-logger-redis.x86_64 2.0.16-1.el6 epel uwsgi-router-redis.x86_64 2.0.16-1.el6 epel [root@ES-0 policybased-rules]# rpm -ql redis-3.2.12-1.el6.x86_64 /etc/logrotate.d/redis /etc/rc.d/init.d/redis /etc/rc.d/init.d/redis-sentinel /etc/redis-sentinel.conf /etc/redis.conf /etc/security/limits.d/95-redis.conf /usr/bin/redis-benchmark /usr/bin/redis-check-aof /usr/bin/redis-check-rdb /usr/bin/redis-cli /usr/bin/redis-sentinel /usr/bin/redis-server /usr/libexec/redis-shutdown /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12 /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/00-RELEASENOTES /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/BUGS /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/CONTRIBUTING /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/COPYING /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/MANIFESTO /usr/share/doc/redis-3.2.12/README.md /usr/share/man/man1/redis-benchmark.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/redis-check-aof.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/redis-check-rdb.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/redis-cli.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/redis-sentinel.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/redis-server.1.gz /usr/share/man/man5/redis-sentinel.conf.5.gz /usr/share/man/man5/redis.conf.5.gz /var/lib/redis /var/log/redis /var/run/redis [root@ES-0 policybased-rules]# file /var/run/redis /var/run/redis: cannot open `/var/run/redis' (No such file or directory) [root@ES-0 policybased-rules]# cat /etc/re redhat-release redis.conf redis.conf.rpmsave redis-sentinel.conf resolv.conf [root@ES-0 policybased-rules]# cat /etc/redhat-release CentOS release 6.5 (Final)

This suggests to me that something has removed this directory post-installation...?

I have not removed any directories. I just tried to install the latest rpm which has the fix for the /var/run/redis directory not being created but after the installation i dont see the directory itself. And it is weird that when the service is started it starts fine but when we check the status iut shows that redis is stopped.

It is indeed wierd, not sure what to make of it. If your /var/run an in-memory filesystem perhaps?

No it is not an in-memory we infact have a seperate filesystem for the /var partition.
