Redis-server install start error

I’m installing from source, following my notes last time I successfully installed it (2016). Now when I run the
openvas-check-setup --v9, I get:
Step 1: Checking OpenVAS Scanner …
OK: OpenVAS Scanner is present in version 5.1.3.
OK: redis-server is present in version v=3.2.6.
OK: scanner (kb_location setting) is configured properly using the redis-server socket: /tmp/redis.sock
ERROR: redis-server is not running or not listening on socket: /tmp/redis.sock
FIX: You should start the redis-server or configure it to listen on socket: /tmp/redis.sock

but, when I look at my REDIS-SERVER log, it shows:
1356:M 31 Oct 12:58:28.696 # Server started, Redis version 3.2.6
1356:M 31 Oct 12:58:28.696 * DB loaded from disk: 0.000 seconds
1356:M 31 Oct 12:58:28.696 * The server is now ready to accept connections on port 6379
1356:M 31 Oct 12:58:28.696 * The server is now ready to accept connections at /tmp/redis.sock

when I search for the redis.sock file, I get:

System = Debian 9.5
Installing from Software.

What’s that causes that odd directory structure in the /tmp folder?


while OpenVAS/GVM is using components like Redis or the Linux Operating System questions for those are better fitting into a support forum/portal of these.

For now i’m closing this thread as off-topic / out of the scope for this OpenVAS/GVM support portal. Please redirect such questions directly to a related support forum. Thanks for your understanding.

Nevertheless a short hint:

The folder has “systemd” in its name so this could be a direction where to look for a possible answer for this question:
