Install memcached in Mac OS El Capitan



The easiest way to install memcached is to use homebrew package installer:

$ brew install memcached

This locates memcached in /usr/local/opt/memcached/bin/

Starting memcached (by default at port 11211 or with -p port_number):

$ memcached -p 9000

To have launchd start memcached now and restart at login:

$ brew services start memcached

To change the default ram size (64mb) used by memcached use -m option:
$ memcached -m 128  -p 9000

Lastly, run memcached as a daemon with -d:

$ memcached -d -p 9000
