Last update and memcached


#1

After the last update I had some problems with memcached and w3 total cache. It seems php was update to 5.6 and cant find memcache.

EasyEngine installs memcached on server. btw you can see memcached with

netstat -tulpn | grep memcached


#3

I get this:

tcp        0      0 127.0.0.1:11211         0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN      7962/memcached  
udp        0      0 127.0.0.1:11211         0.0.0.0:*                           7962/memcached  

If I activate it in W3tc, all goes boom and I get 500 errors on my website.


#4

The issue is there is no php5-memcache or php5.6-memcache installed anymore. W3TC error states the class memcache was not declared, and that’s part of php5-memcache.

I think you’ll have to review your dependencies, guys.

I had the same issue. After upgrading to ee 3.5.0, memcached was gone from server.

try these shell commands one after the other:

ee clean --all
(will tell you that memcached is not installed)

apt-get install memcached
(will re-install memcached)

service nginx restart && service memcached restart
will restart nginx and memcached, so any ngx_pagespeed activated sites or memcached relying plugins can grab memcached.

We have got following solution and works fine for us.

apt-get install php-memcache && service php5.6-fpm restart

This will resolve whitepage/500 issue when you setup w3tc plugin with memcache as db cache or object cache.

Thanks, @harshadyeola. Your solution worked for me!


#8

@angelcosta

We have released a minor hotfix for this issue with version 3.5.2. so this issue will be resolved automatically once you update to EasyEngine version 3.5.2.

I don’t dare to update from ee 3.5.0 atm :smiley:

And there is another issue which just came up. Possibly related to above fixes and needs seperate fix:

daily logrotate notifies this:

/etc/cron.daily/logrotate:
error: error running shared postrotate script for '/var/log/nginx/*.log ’
logrotate_script: 2: logrotate_script: /usr/lib/php5/php5-fpm-reopenlogs: not found
error: error running non-shared postrotate script for /var/log/php5-fpm.log of '/var/log/php5-fpm.log ’
run-parts: /etc/cron.daily/logrotate exited with return code 1

Any idea what to do about it? seems that it needs adjusment because of php5.6 am I right?
