To help developer Plesk introduced a new feature to install additional module from PECL

To start Plesk need some additional packages.

On plesk multiple PHP version can be installed, but none of them comes with pre-installed memcached module. In this tutorial I will show you install memcached for the PHP version 5.6

Install Memcached on Plesk

Note : Before installation of additional packages, install PHP 5.6 from Plesk autoinstaller.

# yum search plesk-php devel
# yum install make plesk-php56-devel gcc glibc-devel libmemcached-devel zlib-devel

Then we build the module:

# /opt/plesk/php/5.6/bin/pecl install memcached

(when prompted for the libmemcached directory, leave it blank and hit the Enter key)

And register it with Plesk:

# echo "extension=memcached.so" > /opt/plesk/php/5.6/etc/php.d/memcached.ini
# plesk bin php_handler --reread

You should now be able to see the extension in Tools & Settings > PHP Settings > *any PHP 5.6 handler*
