Memcached Cloud


Changed the wordpress-memcached-backend backend to use Memcached ver. 2.2.0 PECL package with SASL authentication support, to implement WP Object Cache.

Inehernt support for Memcached Cloud on Heroku and AppFog- just add the Memcached Cloud add-on.


We used the wordpress-memcached-backend, so all credit goes to Zack Tollman.



wp_cache_set('key', 'val');  


wp_cache_set_multi ( 
    array ( 'key1' => 'val1', 'key2' => 'val2', 'key3' => 'val3' ), 

wp_cache_get_multi ( 
    array ( 'key1', 'key2' ), 


  1. Make sure you have libmemcached installed, built with SASL. See the Memcached Requirements.

  2. Install the Memcached ver. 2.2.0 PECL package.

  3. Define the Memcached servers and SASL credentials in your wp-config.php, as follows:

    global $memcached_servers;
    $memcached_servers = array( array( 'host', port ) );
    global $memcached_username;
    $memcached_username = 'sasl_username';
    global $memcached_password;
    $memcached_password = 'sasl_password';

Note: If running on Heroku or AppFog, just install the Memcached Cloud add-on and your conifguration environment variables will be set.

  1. Move object-cache.php to wp-content/object-cache.php
