Memcached (opens new window) is an in-memory key-value store for small chunks of arbitrary data (strings, objects) from results of database calls, API calls, or page rendering.
# Supported versions
# Patch versions
Not officially supported!
While we allow users to specify patch versions for this service they are not officially supported so if you use one, YMMV.
To use a patch version, you can do something as shown below:
services: myservice: type: memcached:1.5.11
But make sure you use one of the available patch tags (opens new window) for the underlying image we are using.
Here are the configuration options, set to the default values, for this service. If you are unsure about where this goes or what this means, we highly recommend scanning the services documentation to get a good handle on how the magicks work.
services: myservice: type: memcached:1 portforward: false mem: 64
# Port forwarding
portforward will allow you to access this service externally by assigning a port directly on your host's
localhost. Note that
portforward can be set to either
true or a specific
port but we highly recommend you set it to
true unless you have pretty good knowledge of how port assignment works or you have a very compelling reason for needing a locked down port.
portforward: true will prevent inevitable port collisions and provide greater reliability and stability across Lando apps. That said, one downside of
portforward: true is that Docker will assign a different port every time you restart your application. You can read more about accessing services externally over here.
services: myservice: type: memcached portforward: true
