1. You need to destroy the cache via a delete and then rebuild it with the new data. Your application is responsible for keeping the cache up to date.

2. Drop apache and use Lighttpd. It will use less memory and therefore leave you with more memory to use with memcached.

  Hi ALL,

     Im trying to get enough details on memcached to check whether it is feasible to use it on a site that is very dynamic.
     Can anyone clear my clouded mind. :)
     1.  If data are cached and in the event that the page was updated what happens to the cache? will it be completely reconstructed? or only portion of it will be replaced?
     2.  Would you recommend memcache to sit on the same box with apache with a 4G RAM resource?
