It's possible to disable memcache session handler support. The 'pecl install' option prompts for this (default is enabled) however when compiling statically into PHP the --disable-memcache-session configure option may be used.

It is very important to note when reading the information supplied by others on this page that there are two *distinct* memcache PHP implementations for the service "memcached".

1) pecl-memcache
2) pecl-memcached

This page is for the first, pecl-memcache.

#if apt-get, rpm, or yum doesn't work
cd /usr/src/
tar -zxvf memcached-2.2.4.tgz
cd memcached-2.2.4
phpize && ./configure --enable-memcache && make
cp modules/ /usr/lib/php/modules/

# Note: packaged extension modules are now loaded via the .ini files
# found in the directory /etc/php.d
touch /etc/php.d/memcached.ini
echo '' > /etc/php.d/memcached.ini

On Slackware, after copilling it, you should copy the file /module/ to /usr/lib/httpd/modules. Then, the instruction must be added into the file /etc/httpd/php.ini

Restart the httpd and it should work!
