I tried doing this:

[root@server ~]# pecl install memcache
downloading memcache-2.2.6.tgz ...
Starting to download memcache-2.2.6.tgz (35,957 bytes)
..........done: 35,957 bytes
11 source files, building
running: phpize
Configuring for:
PHP Api Version: 20041225
Zend Module Api No: 20060613
Zend Extension Api No: 220060519
Cannot find autoconf. Please check your autoconf installation and the
$PHP_AUTOCONF environment variable. Then, rerun this script.

ERROR: `phpize' failed

But it fail, How to fix ?

Honestly dont know, ive see many thread in this forum about memcached, maybe a search would help you much more :)

Also google should be a good friend ;)

I'm always searching google, but didn't find any solutions for this prob.

This is what ive found, honeslty dont know if install from yum is ok aswell but you should give it a try and do some tests

Still encounter an error:

[root@server etc]# chkconfig --add memcached
error reading information on service memcached: No such file or directory
[root@server etc]# ps -e | grep memcached
27083 ? 00:00:02 memcached

The problem appears to be that memcached (http://memcached.org/) is NOT installed.

The distribution and package versioning is confusing:

memcached (v1.4.14 / 2012-7-30 ) http://memcached.org/ (official release/source)

memcache (3.0.6 beta / 2011-04-11) : http://pecl.php.net/package/memcache (memcached extension; this is what you're trying to install)

memcached (2.1.0 /2012-08-07) http://pecl.php.net/package/memcached (php extension)

I would say build the official latest release from source

then install memcached (php extension) 2.1.0 http://pecl.php.net/package/memcached
