I have Memcache installed and working for PHP apps run through Apache (v2.2) but when I try to run a .php file in the command-line i get this error:

Fatal error: Class 'Memcache' not found in /usr/local/Matters/app/matters-common/connection.php on line 94

Line 94 is:

$memcache = new Memcache;

Other info:

Accepted Answer

Presumably you have separate php.ini files set up for apache and the command line (cli).

If so, you need to add the following to your cli php.ini file:


On Ubuntu it's in /etc/php5/cli/php.ini

If it's working then memcache should appear in the list of modules if you run php -m on the command line.

Alternatively, you can create a file /etc/php5/cond.d/memcache.ini with the same contents.
