If you are having difficulties in same situation you should stay away from recompiling your php using /scripts/easyapache – BAD IDEA.

Solution is simple, build memcache and include it in php.ini. Let see, how we do it.

Step 1 – Download memcache

mkdir repo
cd repo
wget http://pecl.php.net/get/memcache-3.0.6.tgz
tar -xvfz memcache-3.0.6.tgz

Step 2 – Compilation & installation

cd memcache-3.0.6
phpize

you should see something like this;

Configuring for:
PHP Api Version: 20041225
Zend Module Api No: 20060613
Zend Extension Api No: 220060519

./configure
make
make install

Step 3 – Load in php.ini

Enable memcache in php.ini.

echo "extension=memcache.so" >> /usr/local/lib/php.ini
service httpd restart
