I recently created a light-weight Docker Compose environment for Drupal 7. It is simple and easy to use. All info needed is in the repo Wiki.

Please check out the repo on Github and let me know thoughts and feedback. I am currently doing the same for Drupal 8 and will have it up soon.

php7 + memcache: stable?

  • The PECL/memcached package is being discussed in this issue where people are actively waiting for a stable release to move to php7 (some of them ended up moving to Redis because it was taking too long)

    Implementing Couchbase vs Redis for Drupal 7 site with horizontal scaling

    We're ll the process of moving our Drupal 7 online app platform site to a major cloud provider that will include horizontal scaling (multiple nodes for Frontend as well as multiple nodes for MariaDB). We're now considering the optimal solution to scale caching.

    We are contemplating substituting standard memcache server with either internal Couchbase memcache server or Redis. The goal is to optimize performance of the site.

    We are also contemplating upgrading from php v5.4 to php7.

    Configuration of Redis for Drupal 6


    Right now I use +

    In my settings.php I put:

      $conf['cache_inc'] = 'sites/all/modules/cache_backport/';
      $conf['redis_client_interface']      = 'PhpRedis';
      $conf['cache_backends'][]            = 'sites/all/modules/redis/';
      $conf['cache_default_class'] = 'Redis_Cache';
      $conf['cache_prefix'] = 'prt_';

    It is OK? Or I can make it better?

    Memcache or Redis for Drupal7 platforms? Or how to speed up registered users actions


    As i understand, D7 platforms have no built config for Redis & Memcached. Currenly 5.3 php has alredy extension, so It is possible to somehow enable them (and not to ruin config, of course)?

    Other related:

    Also, had anyone luck with D7 and authcache? Is it worth to rebuild theme templates?

    Entity cache - any benefit?...

    As for anonymous users, everything just flies!
