Unable to load dynamic library ‘xampp\php\ext\php_memcache.dll’

I have configured Memcached in XAMPP running onwindows 10. But the module was not appearing in phpinfo() data.

The system was throwing the following error.

PHP Warning: PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library ‘xampp\php\ext\php_memcache.dll’ – The specified module could not be found

The issue was due to the fact that the php_memcache.dll downloaded was not mathcing with the PHP version(7.1.14) that I have been using.

Later I downloaded the correct php_memcache.dll file from


Install Memcached XAMPP Windows 10

Memcache is a caching system used to speed up web applications by holding small pieces of arbitrary data, it could be broadly compared to the $_SESSION variable in PHP, but memcache works across the whole application not just on a per user basis and has been successfully proven to make great gains in speed increases on web applications.

Following are the main diffrence

WAMP stands for windows, apache, mysql, php. • XAMPP stands for x-os, apache, mysql, php , perl. (x-os means it can be used for any operating system.)

xampp is easy to use than wamp. • The best advantage of using wamp is that it is easy to setup configuration in wamp.

xampp cpanel is very nice and good for beginner. • Xampp start, pause and stop button work very nicely by functionality. • You can add other services to xampp also

XAMPP is more powerful and resource consuming than WAMP. • WAMP provides support for MySQL and PHP. • XAMPP provides support for MYSQL, PHP and PERL.

XAMPP also has SSL feature while WAMP doesn’t. • WAMP provides support for MySQL and PHP. • XAMPP provides support for MYSQL, PHP and PERL.

If your applications need to deal with native web apps only, Go for WAMP. • If you need advanced features as stated above, go for XAMPP.

As of priority, you cant run both together with default installation as XAMPP gets a higher priority and it takes up ports. • So WAMP cant be run in parallel with XAMPP.



In computer science, ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) is a set of properties that guarantee that database transactions are processed reliably. In the context of databases, a single logical operation on the data is called a transaction. For example, a transfer of funds from one bank account to another, even involving multiple changes such as debiting one account and crediting another, is a single transaction.
