Installing Memcached for Django Application on Windows XP

For a project I needed Memcached. But the problem was that I have my development system on WindowsXP.

When I Google I got various links to install Memcached on windows, but there wasn’t any link that tell all about Memcached with Django on Windows

So Here we go:

  • Download memcached 1.2.4 Win32.
  • Unzip the binaries in your desired directory (eg. c:\memcached)
  • Install the service using the command: ‘c:\memcached\memcached.exe -d install’ from either the command line
  • Start the server from the Microsoft Management Console or by running the following command: ‘c:\memcached\memcached.exe -d start’
  • Use the server, by default listening to port 11211
  • Now we have to get something so that python can talk with our memcached server.
