We’re using a big PHP CMS that relies on memcache. In order to try and move us forward a little I was trying to use Couchbase (4.5) as a drop in HA replacement with replication capability.
This was working well until one of the developers told me about the fact that they regularly use a script to clear out the memcache cache as updates are done. We tested this script with Couchbase and it didn’t work. If I telnet in and run a flush_all it seems to respond as I’d expect, giving an OK, but then does not empty the cache.
Will the PHP script that empties the memcached cache not be able to carry out the same function without a rewrite? It’s a vendor supplied script so we’re probably stuck. If we change it, they’ll find an excuse to not support us!
