# Memcache settings for Joomla 3.3.6

I have placed these in my configuration file: but still cache handler is showing file instead of Memcache:

public $caching = '1'; public$cache_handler = 'memcached';
public $cachetime = '350'; public$session_handler = 'database';
public $memcache_persist = '1'; public$memcache_compress = '0';
public $memcache_server_host = 'localhost'; public$memcache_server_port = '11211';
public $memcached_persist = '1'; public$memcached_compress = '0';
public $memcached_server_host = 'localhost'; public$memcached_server_port = '11211';
public $session_memcache_server_host = 'localhost'; public$session_memcache_server_port = '11211';
public $session_memcached_server_host = 'localhost'; public$session_memcached_server_port = '11211';


My hosting provide said that memcache is installed. I would appreciate if someone can assist in this regard.

More than likely your file is being set to "444" for permissions by your server. Right click the file in filezilla, or whatever you use, and set it to "644" and then save the config file and upload it again.

• Can you point out what the mistakes are? – David Fritsch Jan 21 '15 at 8:41

public \$caching = '1'; this should be 2. Or better yet, just copy the sample configuration on the site I've given and modify it according to your needs ;)

• Instead of giving a separate answer it would be better to edit your previous answer with this new information. This is useful though, thankyou :) – TryHarder Jan 30 '15 at 9:59
