  • 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.
