[resolved] How install Memcached Object AND APC Object Cache Backend (2 posts)

    I would like to install plugins Memcached Object Cache and Object APC Object Cache Backend on my WordPress.

    Each of these plugins should put their content in wp-content.

    The problem is that these two files have the same name, object-cache.php. So on my wordpress, I can only install one

    I wish use both. Do you have a solution ?

    You cannot use both at the same time. They both perform the same task, which is object caching. The difference is whether the object cache is stored in memcached or within APC.

    You should select the one that makes the most sense for your setup. If it is a single server, APC is probably the best choice. For multiple servers memcached would be best, since it can be accessed from multiple machines, without duplicating data.

    APC can be used without object caching, by default APC provides a method of storing the compiled PHP code in memory, reducing the execution time of PHP code. Regardless of object caching, I would recommend the use of APC.

    As far as the comment about wp-content. These plugins store the cache in memory, not on disk. As such you cannot specify where the cache is stored.
