The following guide describes how to install Memcached on a Debian system 11.
Memcached is a data and object caching system, which can significantly reduce the time needed to obtain data from the database by caching them.
The following guide is a perfect complement to our server LAMP in order to accelerate it.
We start the terminal
we are installing the memcached package
apt-get install memcached libmemcached-tools -y
apt-get install python3-pymemcache libcache-memcached-libmemcached-perl -y
We run it in the system:
systemctl start memcached
systemctl enable memcached
We check the status of the service:
systemctl status memcached
Now we will do the configuration.
Basic Memcached configuration
The Memcached configuration file is /etc/memcached.conf.
Basic configuration parameters:
-m - the maximum amount of memory dedicated to Memcached. (by default: 64 MB)
-p - The port on which Memcached is listening. (by default: 11211)
-l - IP address on which the Memcached service is listening by default localhost (127.0.0.1). To listen on all interfaces use 0.0.0.0.
we configure as follows:
After making the changes, we restart the service:
systemctl restart memcached
We install the memcached extension for PHP in the system.
apt-get install php-memcached
Memcached should now be available on php.info and should work fine on the server.
We are also reloading the Apache server.
service apache2 restart
