Replacing memcache.so/memcached.so?

Before I install this, I am wondering whether couchbase.so can be installed side-by-side with memcache.so/memcached.so or if it is an API-compatible drop-in replacement for those? I am asking because I have legacy web apps that expect one of the memcache/memcached extensions. In my opinion, it would be great if couchbase.so wrapped their functions to avoid moxiing. Is this the case?

Thanks,
Claus

« Back to question.

Hi Claus,

Unfortunately, at the moment one would have to replace their current setup with the Couchbase API.

That being said, Memcached.so and Couchbase.so are pretty much a 1 to 1 mapping, so one could fairly easily write a PHP class to wrap it.

I hope that answers your question.

Best,

Robin.
