Memcached and Vanilla 2.8 - causing 504 time out

On Ubuntu 18.04, with nginx and php7.2-fpm

I have installed memcached, checked it is running on the server, and info.php reports that the ini file is parsed, and that memcached is enabled.

Site works fine until I enable memcached in conf .php, at which point it hangs for a while, and eventually returns a 504 error.

If I remove the settings from conf.php, or stop memcached on the server, things go back to normal.


Has anyone come across this? Is there anything I have missed doing?

    My config says:

    $Configuration['Cache']['Enabled'] = true;
    $Configuration['Cache']['Method'] = 'memcached';
    $Configuration['Cache']['Memcached']['Store'] = array (
      0 => 'localhost:11211',

    Perhaps it's not using the correct port. I haven't looked to see why I have it in an array.

  • Thanks, @Linc

    Using your config settings and changing 11211 to seems to have fixed the issue.
