Ok, so I’m trying to enable the
memcached mode of the
W3 Total Cache on my
WordPress site to get better performance compared to the
disk mode I have at the moment.
memcached option in the
Page Cache Method: drop-down menu of the
W3TC settings page was greyed out and disabled since
memcached was not installed in my machine. Thus I followed instructions from this website and this question and ran the following commands:
apt-get -y update && \ apt-get install -y memcached && \ service memcached start apt-get install -y git nano vim netcat && \ apt-get install -y libmemcached-dev libmemcached11 git build-essential && \ apt-get install -y pkg-config zlib1g-dev && \ git clone https://github.com/php-memcached-dev/php-memcached && \ (cd php-memcached && \ git checkout php7 && \ git pull && \ phpize && \ ./configure --with-php-config=php-config && \ make && \ make install)
memcached is successfully installed and say
echo "stats settings" | netcat localhost 11211 works perfectly, but the problem persists and the
phpinfo() page doesn’t have a section for
memcached. This is obviously because my WordPress does NOT yet recognize
memcached as a possible method for caching stuff.
So, what I’m asking is how can I make my WordPress understand that
memcached is a possible caching method?? 🙂 Am I missing any configuration step?
PhP 7.2.28 and
WordPress 5.3.2 on
Debian GNU/Linux 10.
Do you have PHP-FPM installed? I’ve run into issues where I’ve forgotten to restart it after installing something new.
