In my earlier post, I explained how to install Memcached server on Linux and Mac OS systems. Today I will explain how to install Memcached server on Windows operating system.
Install Memcached on Windows
To install the Memcached Server on Windows, we need to have its “exe” or “batch” process file to execute. However, Memcached server was written for Unix/Linux based operating system and you can’t get a Windows version from Memcached server official website.
The problem is solved by Jellycan Code and they provide the Win32 version in a binary format that can be used to install memcached server on Windows.
Steps to install Memcached on Windows
- Download memcached installer zip from http://code.jellycan.com/memcached/ in win32 binary format.
- Unzip it in some hard drive folder. For example C:\memcached
- There will be memcached.exe file in the unzipped folder.
- Open Command Prompt and execute below commands to install it as service and start it.
Now memcached is installed and running as a daemon process on port 11211. You can view it in the Control Panel Services also and stop and start it from there.
You can run
memcached.exe -help command to check all the available options like changing ports.
