I'm trying to get memcached working with SASL. I'm compiling memcached and libevent from source.

These are the steps I took (both under root and a user, same result):

Having these packages:

cyrus-sasl.x86_64               2.1.23-13.el6_3.1    @anaconda-CentOS-201303020151.x86_64/6.4
cyrus-sasl-devel.x86_64         2.1.23-13.el6_3.1    @cloudlinux-x86_64-server-6
cyrus-sasl-lib.x86_64           2.1.23-13.el6_3.1    @anaconda-CentOS-201303020151.x86_64/6.4

-

mkdir -p ~/working/sasl
nano ~/.bashrc

appending:

export PATH=$HOME/working/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=:$HOME/working/lib:$HOME/working/include/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export SASL_CONF_PATH=$HOME/working/sasl
export MEMCACHED_SASL_PWDB=$HOME/working/sasl/my.sasldb

-

. ~/.bashrc
wget https://github.com/downloads/libevent/libevent/libevent-2.0.21-stable.tar.gz
tar zxvf libevent-2.0.21-stable.tar.gz
cd libevent-2.0.21-stable
./configure --prefix=$HOME/working
make
make install
cd ~
wget http://www.memcached.org/files/memcached-1.4.16.tar.gz
tar zxvf memcached-1.4.16.tar.gz
cd memcached-1.4.16
./configure --enable-sasl --enable-sasl-pwdb --prefix=$HOME/working
make
make install
saslpasswd2 -c -a memcached -f ~/working/sasl/my.sasldb mymemcached
nano ~/working/sasl/memcached.conf

insert:

mech_list: plain cram-md5
log_level: 5
sasldb_path: ~/working/sasl/my.sasldb

-

memcached -d -l 127.0.0.1 -p 11211 -m 64 -S -vvv -u root

Now I try to login (using a php script)

I can't figure out what is going wrong, maybe I'm missing a library or an ENV var, or I mis-configured something. I don't know.

The reason I need to keep everything in ~/working is because I want to use this under CloudLinux CageFS, where users have a fully working environment, but can't change anything in /usr/ dirs etc. So everything needs to stay in their home user. But I'm not getting it to work under root either.
