I am running ubuntu gutsy(7.1) , php5 and I am trying to get memcached running locally. I installed everything as per the docs: memcached daemon, php PECL extension, libevent, etc.
But now I can only run half of the example script for memcached append():
<?php $m = new Memcached(); $m->addServer('localhost', 11211); $m->setOption(Memcached::OPT_COMPRESSION, false); $m->set('foo', 'abc'); $m->append('foo', 'def'); var_dump($m->get('foo')); ?>
The script terminates @ append() with an
RES_BAD_PROTOCOL error message. It still runs the get(). I don't know why memcached would otherwise be working fine (connect, set, get - with the correct value of 'abc') and not work for append.
It also doesn't work with prepend.
I believe I have the setup correct, but I am not sure. Maybe there are compatibility problems between the versions of the dependencies?
