How to fix the Memcached error in WordPress during migration?

While migrating Geekflare from SiteGround to InMotion Hosting, I encounter memcached not found error. I spent few minutes and was able to fix this so here is what I did.

The error I received:

PHP Fatal error: Class ‘Memcached’ not found in wp-content/object-cache.php on line 425

I talked to InMotionHosting support and understood memcached is not available on shared hosting which has caused this error as it had with SiteGround.

So how did I fix it?

Well, it was easier than I thought.

  • Login into cPanel
  • Go to File Manager >> wp-content
  • Move object-cache.php to some other name

That’s all. I refreshed and got Geekflare running on InMotionHosting.

The above example is for shared hosting but this can happen on VPS or Cloud server as well. The idea is to move/clean object-cache.php.
