I did this:

sudo yum install memcached


sudo pecl install memcache

then I restarted memcache (which actually only started it) with this:

sudo /sbin/service memcached restart

i have no idea if it will start when I reboot. How do i set that up?

also is there any way to set a password on memcache? I've limited it to by editing /etc/sysconfig/memcached

and adding this line

You can set memcached (or most other services with an init script) to start at boot with a command such as:

chkconfig memcached on

man chkconfig

In that manpage, there are options to list the current status and to enable it at runtime.
