I am trying to get Memcached working. I have a Memcached server running, but it is on a different machine (so different IP address). I have configured the firewall so that my StatusNet host can telnet into Memcached with no problem, but I am now having problems getting the plugin to work.
I am using the master copy of StatusNet from gitorious and I have noticed that there are two plugins, Memcache and Memcached that are not very different. Is one better to use? I tried invoking simply by adding
to config.php and editing the line in the plugin code to
public $servers = array('184.108.40.206;11211');
(replacing 220.127.116.11 with the address of my Memcached server). When I do that, I get a black screen, no log mesages. Trying the same thing on a home installation (running 0.9.0) I get an error message on screen:
Fatal error: Class 'Memcache' not found in /var/www/statusnet/plugins/MemcachePlugin.php on line 201
Any tips would be appreciated!
