How to enable Memcached on PrestaShop
In this guide, we are going to go over how you can configure your PrestaShop application to work with Memcached by using our proprietary Memcached tool which is available in your CPanel.
The first thing that you would need to do is to access your CPanel with us, as the tools that we are going to use are located within, you can do so from your client area with us, by using the buttons which are shown in the following screenshots :
If for some reason you are unable to access your CPanel, you can submit a ticket to our Genious Support Team, which is available 24/7.
After you have accessed your CPanel, you need to make sure that the “Memcached” PHP extension has been enabled for your hosting account, you can do so from the “Select PHP version” tool which is located in your CPanel, once in there just make sure that the box next to the aforementioned PHP extension has been ticked.
After this has been sorted out you would have to create a Memcache instance by using the “Memcached” tool, once in there you can select the name of your instance its size and whether it uses a socket or TCP/IP connection, for PrestaShop you would need to select the TCP/IP option, once you have created it please take note of the IP and Port that you will be provided with since we would need them later on.
Once this has been done you would need to go into your Prestashop’s administrative area and go into the “Performance” section of the “Advanced Parameters” tab.
In the aforementioned area, you would be able to configure your Prestashop to use Memcached, in the fields which are listed you should put the IP and port which have been provided by our tool, and for the Weight section, you should enter 1.
After you have saved the new server settings, your Prestashop should now be using Memcached.
