Error: memcached not showing in phpinfo

What's Causing This Error

When the error message 'memcached not showing in phpinfo' appears, it could be caused by several factors. One possible reason is that the Memcached extension is not installed or enabled on the server where PHP is running. Another reason could be an incorrect configuration of the Memcached extension in the PHP.ini file. It is also possible that the web server needs to be restarted after installing or enabling the Memcached extension.

Solution - Here's How To Resolve It

To resolve this error, there are several solutions available. Firstly, check if the Memcached extension is installed and enabled on your server by creating a PHP file with the following code:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

Then, search for the Memcached section in the output of this PHP script. If the Memcached section is not present, then it means that the Memcached extension is not installed or enabled on your server. In such cases, you need to install or enable the extension by following the instructions provided by your web hosting provider or system administrator.

If the Memcached section is present but empty, then it is likely that the Memcached extension is not configured correctly. You can try editing the PHP.ini file and updating the settings related to Memcached. Ensure that the Memcached extension is loaded using the following command:

Finally, make sure that you restart your web server after any changes to the PHP.ini file. Once the web server has been restarted, the Memcached extension should be visible in the phpinfo() output.
