I installed memcached in my cent OS VPS. Somehow it's not work as i expected and now I switched to suPHP. But when I run 'top' command I can see 'memcached' run as a nobody user.

1727 nobody    20   0 58176 1004  652 S  0.0  0.0   0:00.64 memcached

Then I try to uninstall memcache using this tutorial, but ssh display following respond.

How do I correctly uninstall memcached?

Have you installed memcached with yum? Run something like 'rpm -qa | grep 'memcach*' to ensure the correct name within rpm-db . – deagh Feb 15 '14 at 7:56
It doesn't get any response. – chris Feb 16 '14 at 6:12
I manually search memcached in WHM and deleted 'init.d' contain "memcached" folder. Then problem fixed. :D – chris Feb 16 '14 at 6:27
