How to install memcached

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27

       I'm trying to install memcached on Mac OS X Snow Leopard, with XAMPP, following the instructions from http://www.glenscott.co.uk/blog/2009/08/30/install-memcached-php-extension-on-os-x-snow-leopard/ but for some reason memcached doesn't show up when I call phpinfo()...

Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, I followed those instructions to the letter.

All except the command pecl download memcached... I got an error saying there's no such thing as pecl... so I found another link.

But yes, after I did that, I made sure to add the line to the php.ini file in XAMPP, and then I restarted the server, both with the command line as well as XAMPP control.


Here's the php.ini file if you want to take a look... to see if I did it right.
