How to flush memcached

This article shows how to use flush memcached with the command line interface (CLI).

You must have SSH access to your server in order to use this method. If you do not have SSH access, see How to obtain SSH access from Nexcess for details.

  1. Log in to your server with SSH.
  2. Identify the location of the memcached socket or IP/port using the configuration file of your CMS. If you require assistance locating this file or encounter difficulty with this procedure, contact our Support Teamby email or through the Client Portal.
  3. Flush your cache:
    • For unix-socket-based memcached:

      echo “flush_all” | nc -U [path/to/memcachedsocket.sock]

    • For TCP-socket-based memcached:

      echo “flush_all” | nc [memcachedhost] [memcachedport]

For 24-hour assistance any day of the year, contact our Support Team by email or through the Client Portal.
