Easy way to instale Memcache on WHM and configure it?


Well-known member
I would like to know which is the best way to install memcache on a CentOS server with WHM installed.

I know that I have to configure config.php file on xenforo folder, but which are the best parameters to set in the memcache configuration file?

This one seems good.

Solution is simple, build memcache and include it in php.ini. Let see, how we do it.
Step 1 – Download memcache
mkdir repo
cd repo
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/memcache-3.0.6.tgz
tar -xvfz memcache-3.0.6.tgz
Step 2 – Compilation & installation
cd memcache-3.0.6
you should see something like this;
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version: 20041225
Zend Module Api No: 20060613
Zend Extension Api No: 220060519
make install
Step 3 – Load in php.ini
Enable memcache in php.ini.
echo "extension=memcache.so" >> /usr/local/lib/php.ini
service httpd restart

On Centos?

yum install memcached.x86_64 php-pecl-memcache.x86_64
Be sure after you do to enable it in WHM too. Software ->> Module Installer ->> PHP Pecl and search memcache. You should get two results, memcache and memcached, install both then restart Apache.
