I've just moved over to Litespeed within WHM as I primarily run Wordpress websites, I want to install memcached or redis, but I'm unsure how. Do I do this through EA4 or do I have to run this through yum etc. ? If so, how do I access this from WHM after installation, or do I not?

Hi @inteldigital

You can install memcache and memcached using the EA4 experimental repository. Information on this can be found here: The Experimental Repository - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

You can view available packages with the following:
Code:
yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo="EA4-experimental" list available
Redis is not something cPanel provides/supports, it's also not available through the CentOS base repository. Redis and memcached are both in-memory data storage systems and you wouldn't necessarily want to be using them both at the same time.

There is a post on the forums in regard to redis though I'm unsure how relevant it is at this time install Redis caching engine on Cpanel server with underlying CentOS6.7 OS
