According to the hosting company memcached is configured correct on server en also in xml file... they told me that magento doesn't seem to address the cache and that i needed to find a setting in backend to enable it... propably they dont know what they are talking about?

  • It would also be very helpful if you would actually post what you have "coded" for this in your app/etc/local.xml

No, you just need to configure it in app/etc/local.xml and then check the performance change. Or you can check it by type this command line

echo "stats cachedump 15 4" | nc 11211

I think you know how to use this kind of command. If it is working well then you should see a lot of data.

  • where would i need to type this command Phuc?

  • You can type it in any command line tool. For example: you can login to SSH server via putty and type this command. Or command prompt in windows, terminal in MacOSX

If you have access via SSH, try doing

telnet localhost 11211

and you should see some stats about the service.
