The "memcached error initializing sasl" error occurs when Memcached is unable to initialize Simple Authentication and Security Layer (SASL) authentication. SASL is a framework for providing authentication and security services in networked environments, and it allows clients to authenticate themselves using various mechanisms.
This error can occur due to a few reasons, such as incorrect configuration of the SASL library, missing or incorrect SASL configuration files, or incorrect permissions on the SASL configuration files. Additionally, if SASL is not enabled during Memcached compilation, this error may also occur.
To resolve the "memcached error initializing sasl" error, you can try the following solutions:
--enable-sasl option during the installation.
If none of these solutions work, you may need to seek further assistance from the Memcached community or your system administrator.
