A while back I started looking into caching, (I think) I mistakenly installed both Memcache and Memcached.

If I cd / then I have both:



How should I go about removing these completely from the server?

How did you install it? If you installed it using yum then you should be able to remove it the same way.

First list the memcache packages installed:

yum list memcache*

Then remove the packages (probably two of them):

yum remove [package name from list]
