How to flush Memcached using cronjob

Recommended Posts



I'm a merchant with very little knowledge on php commands.

I have memcahed installed on my server and it works good, problem is the allocated memory of 16mb gets consumed very fast above 100% usage.

I contacted hosting and the only provided blogs of how to create command line and cronjob to flush Memcached.

Unfortunately not knowing anything about commands, I guessed I might be getting a solution from somebody here.

Can anyone teach me how to go about commands? or better still, can somebody provide me with the cron url if thats what is only needed.

In my advanced parameters the memcache is set up like this:

Id       IP address                                                                              Port      weight 

2        /opt/memcached/run/lords/memcached-1.sock            0             1
