Install and configure Memcachezalam
Memcache is a system that works to speed up virtual private servers by caching server information. The program allows you to allocate a specific amount of the server ram toward caching recently queried data for a certain amount of time. Once the data is requested again, memcache speeds up the process of retrieving it by displaying the cached information instead of generating the result from the database.
This is the guide to install memcache on ubuntu server. PHP should be installed on the server before following this tutorial.
PHP package to run memcache
sudo apt-get install php5-memcache
Install memcache server
sudo apt-get install memcached
The next step is to install php-pear, the repository that stores memcache.
sudo apt-get install php-pear
If you do not have a compiler on your server, you can download build-essential in order to install memcache
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Finally use PECL (PHP Extension Community Library) to install memcache
sudo pecl install memcache
Add memcached to memcache.ini
sudo echo "extension=memcache.so" > sudo /etc/php5/conf.d/memcache.ini
Restart apache to see memcache working on your application
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
After Memcache is downloaded, you can check that it has been installed by searching for it
ps aux | grep memcache
This command will output memcache stats
echo "stats settings" | nc localhost 11211
