Support » Everything else WordPress » Using memcached

  • What is the current thinking on memcached?

    • Does it provide a performance increase over WP’s own wp_cache?
    • Do people actually use it
    • Does it add real world performance increase for object caching?
    • Do you just install APC and wp3-total-cache and that beats everything?

    I have some servers with other (non WP!) applications using memcached. They also host WP sites. CDN for files is not in the picture, but an easy memcached implentation (say via something like wp-config.php::define(‘USE_MEMCAHED’,true)) would be worth doing.

    I’m trying to learn a bit more about it all.

    Actually, as 3.1 came out recently, we’re all a bit busy 🙂 Generic questions were on the backburner to bug fixes for most volunteers.

    I use APC instead of Memcache, and it works nicely in parallel to WP’s cache.

    Yes, if configured properly, it can increase the effectiveness of WP’s cache
    Yes, people use it.
    Yes, if configured properly.
    Yeah, I did APC and W3TC personally cause my server was set up for APC.
