    Default [SOLVED] Disable/Uninstall memcached

    I accidentally installed memcached while installing Zimbra 6.02 on my SLES 10 server. Is there a way to either remove or stop this service?

    Thanks

    No one has any ideas on this one??? Does it actually affect anything if it is running?

    This has been covered many times before in the forums, but here it is yet again:
    Code:
    zmmemcachedctl stop
    zmprov ms `zmhostname` -zimbraServiceEnabled memcached
    zmcontrol stop
    zmcontrol start
    The search is a useful tool

    I appreciate the smartass reply but I've looked in the forums for the last two days and found absolutely nothing on this. That's the reason I ask in the first place.

    Hi guys,

    Just a bit more on this. I 'accidentally' installed memcached in the the 5.0.18-6.0.1 upgrade. Even though I disabled it, it comes back to life at each subsequent upgrade. It's only a quick job to disable again, but I'd rather uninstall it. I don't just want to do 'apt-get remove...' as I'm sure it'll break something.

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    I'm in the same boat Jonallport, did you ever figure out a safe way to remove memcached completely from your server?

    Details of how to disable and remove service are in the forums. Run the following command to display the installed & Enabled services:

    Code:
    zmprov gs `zmhostname` | grep zimbraServiceEnabled
    zmprov gs `zmhostname` | grep zimbraServiceInstalled
    To disable a service run the following (this example is for the proxy):

    Code:
    zmprov ms `zmhostname` -zimbraServiceEnabled imapproxy
    Details for memcached are in the earlier post in this thread.

    You're right Bill! Thanks.

    Due to some of the responses above, I assumed that it would turn back on when I updated to the newest version. This is not the case though, and it remained disabled.
