Ubuntu – Install Memcached with PHP-FPM and Nginx

Previous: Ubuntu – Install APC with PHP-FPM and Nginx

Memcached is a distributed memory caching system and it caches data and objects in RAM to reduce the number of times an external data source (such as a database or API) must be read.

Like APC, the installation is simple.

1. Install Memcached.

  • apt-get install memcached


2. After the installation, you could start and stop the servers by the following commands.

  • /etc/init.d/memcached start
  • /etc/init.d/memcached stop


3. Install Memcached PHP module.

  • apt-get install php5-memcached


4. Restart PHP-FPM

  • /etc/init.d/php5-fpm restart


5. Check it out.

6. You could configure Memcached @ /etc/php5/conf.d/memcached.ini.

Done =)
