First of all...
I must say, I don't know much about servers. I'm the kind of php developer that don't use command lines very often. I'm very uncomfortable in the Terminal.
However, I'm learning. I'm not used to have my websites on dedicated servers without managed hosting. But now I have it for the first time, and I need to install Memcache by my self.
Some Server Info
- Product: Dedicated Server (DV) on Media Temple
- Parallels® Plesk Panel 12 or cPanel® 11
- CentOS 5.7 (Final)
- Apache 2.2
- PHP 5.4
- YUM package management
What I've done
I have followed this guide: https://mediatemple.net/community/products/dv/204644340/installing-pecl-extensions
But of course with
memcache instead of
And I have checked, Memcache is installed and running. And
$memcache = new Memcache; is working in my php codes. But
$memcache->connect('localhost', 11211); is not working. I get error message:
Warning: Memcache::connect(): Can't connect to localhost:11211, Connection refused (111) in /var/www/vhosts/[mydomain]/httpdocs/index.php on line 10 Could not connect to memcache server
And I have tried to change
localhost to the server's IP number but without success.
I have googled a lot, and ended up in articles and forum threads about installing
Memcached before. So I followed one of those guides and tried to install it. But got error messages
No package memcached available. so it couldn't be installed.
Here are a sample of commands I did after that:
Nothing to do [root@mydomain /]# php -i | grep memcache PHP Warning: Module 'memcache' already loaded in Unknown on line 0 /etc/php.d/memcached.ini, PHP Warning: Unknown: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings.

What did I forget to do?
