I'd like to run an instance of Redis and am testing with the default port 6379. What if another user on my shared host also runs Redis on that port? Is there a way to reserve that (or another) port number on that box (Redis only needs to be accessible from localhost, not externally).

You can reserve a port number on our control panel if you create a 'Custom app (listening on port)' type of application.
This will reserve a port for you, which will not get assigned to any other customer on the same server and you can safely use it.
Please note that this doesn't prevent another user to go to his own app and change the port that it is listening to. If that ever happens, your processes will of course take priority.
