Installing memcached to use it with php

By ctherouxNo Comments

Installing Memcached with php support in Ubuntu is a matter of a few steps:

sudo apt-get install memcached php5-memcached
sudo service apache2 restart

You can test if memcached is active by running this command:
echo "stats settings" | nc localhost 11211
You will end up with a response like this one:

STAT maxbytes 67108864
STAT maxconns 1024
STAT tcpport 11211
STAT udpport 11211
STAT inter 127.0.0.1

STAT item_size_max 1048576
STAT maxconns_fast no
STAT hashpower_init 0
STAT slab_reassign no
STAT slab_automove 0
END
