Getting started with Memcached

Memcache is a tool which can cache objects in memory – and is often used for speeding up dynamic web applications. PHP has a built-in module for working with memcache, and its a simple and convenient way of introducing caching to your application. PHP has a PECL module for talking to memcached – look up how to install for your system, but be aware that it isn't bundled. It's a good module to include on your system however, quite a few apps will take advantage of it where available.
