I need to install memcache on my dev server,

I am using Xampp on Windows

I have read a few sites that say you uncomment these lines in the php.ini file for xampp which I have done

memcache.allow_failover = 1
memcache.chunk_size =8192
memcache.default_port = 11211

Then it says:

Then head to Jellycan Code and download the Windows memcached port (binary). At this point you should be able to launch the .exe and run the sample code above.

I have done all this and I cannot fine a single .exe file in the memcache package, I tried downloading ALL the memcache packages and checked them all and cannot find any exe files, and I don't think I am overlooking it as I searched the folder with 0 results.

Also every site I have read on how to install memcache on xampp give these same directions, please help someone

You downloaded this file? All it has is an exe inside. – LukeR Jul 30 '09 at 10:12

Hi contains a .exe file, infact it only contains a .exe file?

That's wright. You must have gotten the source files archive instead of the binary one. – evilpenguin Aug 13 '09 at 13:05
