Subject [users@httpd] Are apache caching modules redudant of memcached?
Date Fri, 22 May 2009 18:51:53 GMT

In an attempt to address the lsof problem we flagged in this thread -- -- I've been rifling through my httpd.conf looking for
unnecessary modules I can trim out of my httpd processes. 

So far this has basically amounted to me eliminating things like mod_cgi,
mod_vhost_alias, mod_speling and other Modules provided by my host by
default, but which don't seem necessary to my Django application site. 

As I review the modules, I see a series of modules relating to caching. They

LoadModule cache_module modules/
LoadModule disk_cache_module modules/
LoadModule file_cache_module modules/
LoadModule mem_cache_module modules/

The site I am operating is using a memory caching system provided by the
memcached application. I'm curious whether memcached is redudant to these
Apache processes, or dependent on them. 

In other words, is it safe for me to comment them out?

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate the kind expertise available here in
the listserv.
