I recently installed MAMP Pro 1.9.5. I followed several tutorials online explaining how to enable memcached. I was able to compile correctly with no errors. I added to my php.ini as For some reason it does not add the extension. My file is, I assure you, located in the extension_dir of MAMP php 5.3.

On a side-not, it seems when I comment out some extensions in the php.ini it has no affect. Perhaps this might have something to do with it?

Any direction would be GREATLY appreciated. I have wasted many hours finding solutions to this.

After much research and trial and error, I found the solution. The php.ini file I was editing in the MAMP/conf/ directory is in fact NOT being used by MAMP. For the record I am using 1.9.5. To edit the php.ini file correctly, you must select File > Edit Template > PHP 5.x.x php.ini

This is here in case anyone else needs to know.
