Missing mod_cache from apache

  • Posted October 23, 2014

Hello! I just installed wordpress and was trying to optimize the apache server a little following the “How To Configure Content Caching Using Apache Modules On A VPS” guide. The problem is, when I try to edit the disk_cache.conf or mem_cache.conf, it’s empty(doesn’t exist). I use ubuntu and installed wordpress via one click install app.

It looks like there have been a few changes since that article was written. As of Ubuntu 14.04 disk_cache.conf is now:


mod_mem_cache was removed from Apache 2.4 Looking at the official Apache upgrading guide:

These modules have been removed: mod_authn_default, mod_authz_default, mod_mem_cache. If you were using mod_mem_cache in 2.2, look at mod_cache_disk in 2.4.
