Memcache Installed on VPS
The super support folks at KnownHost installed Memcached for me today on my VPS. I also asked for the PECL Memcache libraries and they got the latest stable version which is 2.2.6 at this time. Did I need it? No not for this little site with light traffic, but I had to see how it all worked so that when the time comes I will know.
It all works with the Drupal module named Memcache API and Integration. With all the talk of this being an advanced solution to caching it was surprisingly straight forward. Maybe I was just lucky. The biggest mind bender was reading memcache and memcached over and over to confusion.
