Use Redis and Memchached together, possible?

OS type and version Debian 10
Virtualmin version 7.1-1

Hi guys,

I have a question, using Debian 10 and the Virtualmin LAMP stack. Is it possible actually and recommend using Redis cache and Memchached together on one server? Or will it be a problem?
I’m hosting just some WP-Sites on it…

Thanks a lot already upfront.


It is possible. But to configure it correctly for each wordpress sites might be another challenge.

Virtualmin don’t care.

If it is ordinarily OK to do it in any other kind of deployment, it’s OK to do it with Virtualmin on the system. But, it seems…maybe an unnecessary waste of resources? Why wouldn’t one cache be sufficient? At some point you’re throwing away memory on the wrong things; memory that could better be used for database query caches and indexes, disk buffering, etc.


Perfect, thanks a lot @Joe and @technicalw for all the information. Yes, Joe, you’re right, actually one of them should be enough to operate :slightly_smiling_face:
I’ll go to have a try with Redis first on my Testserver.

Have a great weekend.
