What is Memcached or XСache



My one mod does not work and I have been told without Memcached or XСache it will not. Can someone please tell me a bit more about this as I am not sure how to sort this one out :unsure:

Oh that's odd, never seen a xF addon require it. If you have a VPS or Dedicated, you'll need to install both Memcache and the Memcache PECL, if your on shared hosting, ask your host, sadly though, we are one of the very few hosts that offers memcache on our shared servers.

They are going to be limiting themselves so who can use that mod then. No idea why either of those are "required" as they only cache the compiled PHP page?
