Install Memcache with cPanel that running CentOS

I was trying to install Memcache from cPanel from yesterday night but it seems to be sucks when installing from cPanel control panel.

Hence, I am sharing the step as below which I used to compiled manually from the shell.

Create a temporary folder
1. As it is a manually work, you might want to clear the source file after the installation, so create a folder as command below.

mkdir ~/memcache

Install LibEvent
To install memcache, you will need LibEvent, go to their site to get the latest version.

cd ~/memcache
wget http://monkey.org/~provos/libevent-1.4.14b-stable.tar.gz
tar zxvf libevent-1.4.14b-stable.tar.gz
cd libevent-1.4.14b-stable
./configure
make
make install

Install Memcache
Now, install the memcache and get the latest version from their site.

cd ~/memcache
wget http://memcached.googlecode.com/files/memcached-1.4.5.tar.gz
tar zxvf memcached-1.4.5.tar.gz
cd memcached-1.4.5
./configure --with-lib-event=/usr/local/
make
make install

Install PHP Memcache
Now, install PECL Memcache and get the latest version.

cd ~/memcache
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/memcache-2.2.6.tgz
tar zxvf memcache-2.2.6.tgz
cd memcache-2.2.6
phpize
./configure
make
make install
vi /usr/local/lib/php.ini

Find the extension as below and if it is not existed, add it in the php.ini.

extension=memcache.so

Restart the Apache services.

service httpd restart

  1. Thanks a TON for posting this. Everytime I switch hosts or deploy new machines, I need to ask my host to do this. Now I don’t. Thanks again. Awesome instructions.
