XF 1.1 Setting Up Frontent Cache

    I went to the User Manual for Caching (xenforo.com/help/cache/)

    Is there anything else to do other than pasting this code below in order to set up frontent cache?

    $config['cache']['enabled'] = true;
    $config['cache']['frontend'] = 'Core';
    $config['cache']['frontendOptions']['cache_id_prefix'] = 'xf_';
    When I past this code above, I'm getting this "unexpected error". This is currently how my config.php looks like:

    $config['db']['host'] = 'localhost';
    $config['db']['port'] = '3306';
    $config['db']['username'] = 'user';
    $config['db']['password'] = 'pass';
    $config['db']['dbname'] = 'dbname';
    $config['superAdmins'] = '1';
    //config['debug'] = true;
    $config['cache']['backend'] = 'Memcached';
    $config['cache']['backendOptions'] = array(
                'servers' =>array(
                                    'host' => '', // your memcached server ip /address
                                    'port' => 11211        // memcached port
                'compression' => false

    Your Memcached server probably isn't right. Without the lines you pasted initially, it isn't even being used.

    You also need to remove the 2nd backend options.

    $config['cache']['backendOptions'] = array(
        'backendOptions'=>array(  -NOT NEEDED
                'servers' =>array(
    I think Kier fixed the cache docs, so I would go check that again.

    Good catch.

    It seems that I have not configured memcached, I followed this article.

    Memcached is now running:

    root@server1 [~]# netstat -tulpn | grep :11211
    tcp 0 0* LISTEN 1463/memcached
    udp 0 0* 1463/memcached

    No longer getting errors with the revised memcached.
