Apache::Session::Store::Memcached(3) Stores persistent data using memcached


tie %session, 'Apache::Session::Memcached', $sid, {
Servers => '',
NoRehash => 1,
Readonly => 0,
Debug => 1,
CompressThreshold => 10_000
# use with another locking/generation/serializaion scheme
use Apache::Session::Flex;
tie %session, 'Apache::Session::Flex', $id, {
Store => 'Memcached',
Lock => 'Null',
Generate => 'MD5',
Serialize => 'Storable',
Servers => '',


Apache::Session::Store::Memcached implements the storage interface for Apache::Session using Cache::Memcached frontend to memcached.


This module wants to know standard options for Cache::Memcached. You can specify these options as Apache::Session's tie options like this:

   tie %session, 'Apache::Session::Memcached', $sid, {
      Servers => '',
      Debug => 1

Note that spelling of options are slightly different from those for Cache::Memcached.

'Servers', 'NoRehash', 'Readonly', 'Debug' and 'CompressThreshold' are the corrispondant to 'servers', 'no_rehash', 'readonly', 'debug' and 'compress_threshold' Cache::Memcached parameters.

In addition 'Server' can be either a scalar of the form 'IP:port IP:port ...', either an arrayref of hosts (as required by Cache::Memcached).

See Cache::Memcached for details.
