So today I quickly installed Redis on a server, and I wanted to keep a copy of all the commands I had used to do so. I knew there was a better way than hitting the up arrow each time to copy and paste each command in reverse order. So after some Googling, I found out about the history command. So I was able to type the command “history” and it showed me the last two thousand or so commands I had used. I was able to copy and paste that into a wiki, and was good to go. You could also search your history by piping the history command to grep. Cool stuff I don’t want to forget.

Try ctrl + r to search history. (press ctrl + r again to step through matches).
