<?php $memcache = new Memcache; $memcache->connect('127.0.0.1', 11211) or die ("Could not connect"); //connect to memcached server $mydata = "i want to cache this line"; //your cacheble data $memcache->set('key', $mydata, false, 100); //add it to memcached server $get_result = $memcache->get('key'); //retrieve your data var_dump($get_result); //show it ?>
