A pure PHP Memcache client with binary protocol and SASL support.

It aims to be compatible with the PHP Memcached class. You can find documentation on the PHP Memcached class here. Not all features are supported at this time.

Usage example


/* connect to a server */
$m = new MemcacheSASL;
$m->addServer('', '11211');

/* set timeout to 2 second */
$m->setOption(MemcacheSASL::OPT_SEND_TIMEOUT, 2000000);
$m->setOption(MemcacheSASL::OPT_RECV_TIMEOUT, 2000000);

/* set SASL username and password */
$m->setSaslAuthData('username', 'password');

/* perform some operations */
var_dump($m->add('test', '123'));

Changes vs. ronnywang Version

This is a fork of the original code base by Ronny Wang. We have made the following improvements:

  • Support for flush.
  • Support for timeouts on operations (connections and requests).
  • Fixed increment and decrement operations.
  • Support for the PHP Composer package manager.
  • Support setOptions method.


This library is BSD-licensed.
