MemcacheD Is Your Friend

Description

Memcached Object Cache provides a persistent backend for the WordPress object cache. A memcached server and either the
the PECL Memcached or PECL Memcache extension and class are required. Detects either the PECL Memecache or PECL
Memcached (Memcached preferred) class and uses the appropriate interface. That means you don’t need to figure out
which PHP class is available in your installation, the plugin will detect the proper configuration.

This plugin does not require manual copying of files between directories for installation, and it doesn’t require the installer
to differentiate between the memcache and memcached PECL extensions if they know their host makes once available.

Also, because this plugin autodetects the PECL extension available, for those that develop on Windows where the
PECL Memcached extension is not generally available, you can maintain a common configuration with your Linux host
where that extension is common.

Plugin creates a dashboard menu option under “Tools” where you can view your memcached statistics.

Plugin is based laregly on previous works by Matt Martz, Ryan Boren (https://wordpress.org/plugins/memcached/) and

  1. If not already available, install memcached on at least one server. Note the connection info. The default is 127.0.0.1:11211.

  2. If not already available on your host, install the [PECL extension](http://pecl.php.net/package/memcached or http://pecl.php.net/package/memcached)

  3. Activate the plugin

FAQ

How can I manually specify the memcached server(s)?

Add something similar to the following to wp-config.php above /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */:

$memcached_servers = array(
    'default' => array(
        '127.0.0.1:11211',
        '10.10.10.30:11211'
    )
);

Brillant — easy!

A really, really easy install. And to ensure it’s working, just look under Tool > Memcached and see statistics. Thanks!

Just installed this plugin to replace Memcached Redux. So only time will tell how this plugin performs for my website. But so far so good…
