We’ll now walk through the installation of MemCache on our Ubuntu 20.04 environment. The very basic definition of what Memcached is is as follows. Memcached is a free and open-source program that eases the re-extraction of information from a database with an object caching program, which allows for PHP-based apps such as WordPress and Joomla to run smoothly without much latency. In other words, it helps with the database loads, since the re-extraction of information is much easier.
