Warning: memcache_connect()...Connection refused

Got this strange error in a banner at the top of my browser today:

Warning: memcache_connect(): Can’t connect to 127.0.0.1:11211, Connection refused (111) in /home/kingpin/web/tcorg/f/ips_kernel/classCacheMemcache.php on line 90

Browser: Firefox 16
Plugins: NoScript + AdBlock (disabled on TC)

Same on Chrome.

Chrome here, same problem.

Same on Opera

with the last update our memcached instance keeps crashing. luckily neither of the VPS’s with memcached on them were upgraded yet so they havent caught this issue. awaiting a fix.

its fixed now /emoticons/default_smile.png

yeah basically the memcached server keeps crashing, but theres more than one in the array (theres 2 VPS’s + one local) so the site keeps working albeit with the error displayed. when I see it I restart it and that removes the error. hoping it gets updated and fixed soon.

It’s working good now but FYI: I noticed that when the error is displayed it prevents me from editing my posts using Firefox (not sure about other browsers).

Chrome too .

It’s not browser related stop posting useless things.

+KingPin memcache is doing it again.

the VPS with memcached was under attack, fixed for now.

PS. It’s back.

Chrome 24.

yeah sometimes earlier tonight that VPS died, waiting for hardware replacement. for the time being its been removed from rotation.

Just curious, but why use memcached? These forums don’t have nearly enough hits to require distributing memory caches cross servers. Why not use APC instead?

APC is in use actually, memcached was setup for a different site on the same machine, and since it was available it was added to IPB here for TC also. no other reason.
