Getting Memcached Operational


Active member
Hello folks,

Could use some help getting Memcached operational on my server/XF site. So far the support folks at my host have installed:

  • Memcached
  • yum list installed (ea-libmemcached.x86_64, libmemcached.x86_64, libmemcached-devel.x86_64)

My understanding is I need to add some code somewhere in the XF templates to get Memcached operational. I know there are some threads here at that explain some of this...but after reviewing them I'm not 100% sure of the procedure.

Can some kind person or persons guide me through what needs to done please:

  • What code needs to be added.
  • What XF template the code needs to be added to.
  • Where in the template(s) the code needs to be placed.
  • Any additional items.

Thanks very much.:)
