How to enable memcache in WAMP

How to install memcache in WAMP?

I don't find any php_memche in


What do I do now?


thanks for your step, now memcache enabled in WAMP, i have cross checked in the PHPINFO as well. memcache is displaying.

i have tried below example memcache sample. but throwing error.


$memcache = new Memcache;
$memcache->connect('localhost:8085', 11211) or die ("Could not connect");

$version = $memcache->getVersion();
echo "Server's version: ".$version."<br/>\n";

$tmp_object = new stdClass;
$tmp_object->str_attr = 'test';
$tmp_object->int_attr = 123;

$memcache->set('key', $tmp_object, false, 10) or die ("Failed to save data at the server");
echo "Store data in the cache (data will expire in 10 seconds)<br/>\n";

$get_result = $memcache->get('key');
echo "Data from the cache:<br/>\n";



Getting below notice error.

( ! ) Notice: Memcache::getversion() [memcache.getversion]: Server localhost:8085 (tcp 11211) failed with: Malformed version string (0) in C:\wamp\www\memcache\sample.php on line 7

What i missed...
