Use Memcached


Use this to optimize your website performance with Memcached instances.

Arbitrary section

There’s a documentation at


  1. Upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Extract the Plugin to a use-memcached Folder
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  4. The plugin will copy a object-cache.php file to /wp-content/ folder
  5. You can provide custom memcached server settings in the wp-config.php file


Do I have to configure something?

If you are using a Memcached service with default values host (localhost) and port 11211 or you are hosting with than you don’t need to configure anything.

With other hosters or service settings you need to configure some php variables in wp-config.php file.

It should not be a big deal that a plugin works. None of the others do. This one is so simple. Download, install the plugin in wordpress, activate it and then set the turn it on. It works. Be sure and remove all the garbage all the others tell you to put in your config file first. You do not need to do that here. You do not need to be a programmer or a profession IT person to use this. If you have the memchaced installed on your server then this is going to work.

the highlight color deserves to be more discreet in the menu, but otherwise, it's just perfect! Finally a plugin that works with memcached on my server and just for that, thank you 1000 times! Ajax reload for flushing is nice 😉
