You'd need to manually start it using a command like the one referenced earlier in this thread. EX:



Keep in mind this module is still considered experimental and thus is not yet ready for production machines.

Thank you.
Then it's will run memcached from user nobody? What the difference from command "yum install memcached" and "yum install ea-memcached"?

Does this correct steps?

Code:
yum install ea-php71-php-memcache
yum install ea-php71-php-memcached
yum install memcached

Right, as that's the user Apache runs as. Keep in mind this is unsupported, so you may want to consult with a qualified system administrator for help setting it up.

What the difference from command "yum install memcached" and "yum install ea-memcached"?
The primary difference is that one method installs Memcached manually using your CentOS repos, whereas the other method installs it as part of an EasyApache 4 RPM. With the EA4 experimental method, there is no SASL, and no per-user init files, which means it is not considered ready for shared environments.

Thank you.

Is this any closer to production release ?
