I've installed memcached on my ubuntu server (8.04), but after

apt-get install memcached

and successfully installing it, it does not appear in php.ini.

I have tested memcached by doing

telnet 11211

and executing commands such as STATS; success.

I have placed in my .ini file.

However, i have searched the computer using

find / -name

and it comes up empty.

Can I fix this ?

Did you install it? Installing the memcache server does not install the php module.
