memcached php mysql freebsd

Too many slow queries running on MySQL and some can not be fixed without a major change? Here's a potential solution, cache it!

Step 1) Install memcache, in this case on FreeBSD

1. cd /usr/ports/databases/memcached; make install clean
2. vi /etc/rc.conf, and add memcached_enable="YES"
3. /usr/local/etc/rc.d/memcached start
4. run "netstat -an" to check that a process is listening on TCP 11211
5. cd /usr/ports/databases/pecl-memcache ; make install clean
6. /usr/local/bin/php -i | grep -i 'memcache'
7. Play with memcached in PHP scripts

step 2)
use memcache in your scripts!

  1. Love memcache, it really speeds up OpenX adserver automatically. Just had to install it and just like that OpenX was running faster.
