Memcache is a caching system used to speed up web applications by holding small pieces of arbitrary data, it could be broadly compared to the $_SESSION variable in PHP, but memcache works across the whole application not just on a per user basis and has been successfully proven to make great gains in speed increases on web applications.

Below step is to configure memcache in XAMPP.

1) Enable the module Memcache.

It can be done by editing the php.ini file(As per my system setup location is E:\xampp\php\php.ini)

Serach for the text ‘;extension=php_memcache.dll’ andreplace it with ‘extension=php_memcache.dll’

If the text ‘;extension=php_memcache.dll’ is not available in php.ini file add the below content to it.


memcache.allow_failover = 1
memcache.chunk_size =8192
memcache.default_port = 11211

2) Download the necessary php_memecache.dll file.
