In the past I’ve had to look this up a couple of times and it took me longer than I would have liked to find the answer, so I hope this post can cut down on that time for you now and future me.
After you’ve installed Homebrew you will have access to a
brew services command for relevant packages. This command is for background services like in this case, database applications.
To start either of the titled services you can use the following commands:
Start Postgres or Redis:
brew services start redis brew services start postgresql
If you need to restart these services for any reason you can do so using these commands:
Restart Postgres or Redis:
brew services restart redis brew services restart postgresql
And may you need to stop any of these background processes you can through these commands:
Stop Postgres or Redis:
brew services kill redis brew services kill postgresql
