Anyone good with server configs and Memcached?


Well-known member
I have a server issue and am hoping for some help... :(
I managed to go so far with everything, but we just cannot get memcached going.

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, PHP 5, and it won't have any of it.
I can install the server for memcached (now removed) but not the PHP side of it.

This is the error, which points to changing the PHP version to a lower one;
    The following packages have unmet dependencies:
php5-memcached : Depends: php5-common (= 5.3.29-1~dotdeb.0) but 5.5.9+dfsg-1ubuntu4.9 is to be installed
I've tried many different things, but no joy.
Spoken with our host DO and they sent me a few things to try but ultimately they weren't sure as after all, they're just the hosts..

I followed THIS guide and another for 14.02 I think it was, but nothing..

I actually crashed the server (live) too, which hasn't helped today.
I'd be most grateful for some help/advice.
many thanks

Can you possibly provide an example with the mentioned depends included?
I've tried it a few ways but it keeps coming back with command not understood (or words to that effect, been a loooong day)
And thank you!! (y)

Couldn't get this working, but managed to get Zend working fine..
Does anyone have a good working cache config setting I can use an example please?
That page doesn't go into too much detail and I can't really find much info either for Zend on the config files?

I have this as an idea but unsure really...

$config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
$config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
$config['cache']['frontendOptions'] = array(
'caching' => true,
'automatic_serialization' => true,
'lifetime' => 3600,
'cache_id_prefix' => ''

$config['cache']['backend'] = '';

Zend Opcache? There's no config needed. Just make sure things are actually being cached.
I can set up memcached for you if you like, it works great with Opcache.

Seems to be so yes.. I think it was from an update required for ffmpeg.
Hard to shake too, that much I can tell you. So frustrating o_O
