mod_mcpage is a lighttpd module using libmemcached to store and retrieve dynamically generated pages using memcached. The 1.5 version can also cache local files in memcached.

Links to the latest versions of the mod_mcpage patches and the README file will be available on this page. These patches are generated against the 1.4 and 1.5 svn branches. Instructions for downloading and building lighttpd from svn are available from the lighttpd docs.


  • This module works well for me running Daily Kos, but may or may not work well for you.
  • At the moment, the 1.5 changes for handling local files still need to be merged back into the 1.4 patch. The 1.4 patch still caches dynamic content just fine.
  • It is, of course, a work in progress, and it’s still missing some features. Latest summary of progress
