    Hello folks?

    Wondering if running memcache client and the server poses any security issues and how to prevent it?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello,

    I'll leave this thread open for user-feedback, but I did want to note that we don't yet fully support the use of Memcache/Memcached with EasyApache 4. It's still considered experimental at this time:

    MemcacheD in EasyApache4

    Additionally, here's a third-party URL you may find helpful as far as securing Memcached after you install it:

    Thank you.

    @cPanelMichael, many thanks for pointing me to the right direction.

    I will attempt to follow the instructions and report back.

    Thanks again.
