Apache::Session::Memcached is a bridge between Apache::Session and memcached, a distributed memory cache daemon.

More information about memcached is available at <http://www.danga.com/memcached>.

This module provides a way to use Cache::Memcached (memcached Perl API) as Apache::Session storage implementation.


In order to install and use this package you will need Perl version 5.005 or better.


  • Apache::Session >= 1.54
  • Cache::Memcached >= 1.14

Installation as usual:

   %> perl Makefile.PL
   %> make
   %> make test
   %> make install

Note: for live tests, you must run at least a memcached daemon and you could need to edit t/CONFIG file, in order to set correct parameters used for testing.
