Using memcached on localhost in WAMP/WIndows
August 07, 2010 08:20AM
Hi guys. I am interested in coding memcached within my project. I
would like to use it in my localhost. I have been researching but I am
not sure about the installation process on a windows vista computer
with WAMP. Is there anyone in here who could give me an idea on how to
achieve this? Thanks in advance

Why not just bring it up on a cheap Linux box? I had a big windows
installation, but didn't want to deal with all of the Windows updates,
reboots, and other issues. The Linux box has been running for 3+ years, and
the cache has never been lost. Just about any old computer with a few GB of
RAM will do, and it is relatively easy to bring the box up.

Another issue with running it on something like Vista is the problem of
available memory. If you are using this box for development, or for other
application purposes, you may have insufficient memory for any real benefit
from memcached.

By the way, I wouldn't run anything on Vista. Got rid of it the day that
Windows 7 came out...

Download binaries, install as service with sc:

Hey guys thanks for the suggestions. I understand the benefits of
developing on a linux machine but right now I can't , I had a
partitioned hd with ubuntu but I got rid of it a while ago. Now I only
develop on windows. My goal is just to learn to implement memcached
within my code for development and learning. I doubt I will have to
use memcached in my proect unless somehow it became very popular.
However, I would like to be on the safe side and code my project in a
way that could be ready for scalability and heavy traffic.

Also, I am curious, i have read that there are different versions of
memcached and the old ones might be buggy. Which ones are the right
binaries i should look for? Now, after i download the binaries, should
I mount them on a virtual drive? burn it to a disk? or how do i set up
the service? ..someone suggested using Sc.exe , I am gonna look it up.
I think that after I set memcached as a service is all about making
php get the extension in the php.ini file, am I right?

Thanks

I wasn't suggesting that you develop your app in Linux. Go ahead, develop
on Windows -- memcached you shouldn't care what OS it is on -- it's just
going to take serialized objects, and store them in a key-value cache. I
just think it's much easier to get it running on Linux, and has less
vagaries.

Keep in mind that the memcached service has limited memory in the default
configuration. You will have to become familiar with startup switches in
order to get much RAM beyond the limited amount available in the default
configuration.
