Memcached usage with Trellis & potentially missing info in documentation

Hey all,

I’ve just had to explain to a client what software we would like to install on their VPS (they’re a security company) as part of the Trellis setup , they’ve asked “what would you be caching in Memcached?” and I can’t find any info on this to report back.

The docs mention FastCGI caching is enabled if cache enabled is set to true in wordpress_sites.yml however I can’t find any info on how/if Memcached will be used by WordPress.

Could someone shed some light on this for me please?


Memcached is just there if you want to use a caching plugin like Batcache. FastCGI caching is separate so you can just remove memcached if you aren’t using it.

Thanks for the quick response Scott
