Memcached is an open-source, high-performance distributed memory caching system that can help improve the performance of dynamic websites and web applications. Here's how you can use Memcached:
sudo apt-get install memcached
Here's an example of how to connect to Memcached using the PHP client library:
// Connecting to Memcached server $memcached = new Memcached(); $memcached->addServer('localhost', 11211);
set()method and get data using the
// Setting data in Memcached $memcached->set('key', 'value'); // Getting data from Memcached $value = $memcached->get('key');
set()method's third parameter.
// Setting data with an expiration time of 300 seconds (5 minutes) $memcached->set('key', 'value', 300);
// Deleting data from Memcached $memcached->delete('key');
// Flushing the entire cache in Memcached $memcached->flush();
That's it! Now you know how to use Memcached for caching data and improving the performance of your website or application.
