Memcached Configuration

Am trying to setup memcached on a RHEL 7 box.
Did an install of memcached and php-pecl-memcache
Also configured the firewall for the server to access memcached on 11211 port outbound connection.
Am not able to get it setup properly.
What am I doing wrong?


Welcome to IW forums

If you upload a info.php to one of your domains on the server, does it show memcache memcached

Why have you configured your firewall to allow access on localhost

Have you tested using telnet commands

telnet localhost 11211


set key_name meta_data expiry_time length_in_bytes


set Test 0 100 5 # press enter
Hello # press enter

STORED # you’ll see this message after storing

so it is as follows:

telnet localhost 11211
Trying ::1…
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is ‘^]’.
set Test 0 100 5

Many thanks


Hello John,
Thank you for your message.
I had to restart the PHP FPM cache and services to get the memcached working.
Silly, but it can be an ache.
