    The plugin is implemented as a PHP extension. See
    also the installation instructions to install this extension.

    Compile or configure the PHP MySQL extension (API)
    (mysqli, PDO_MYSQL, mysql). That extension must use
    the mysqlnd library as
    because mysqlnd_memcache is a plugin for the mysqlnd library. For
    additional information, refer to the mysqlnd_memcache
    installation instructions

    Then, load this extension into PHP and activate the
    plugin in the PHP configuration file using the PHP configuration
    directive named mysqlnd_memcache.enable.

    Example #1 Enabling the plugin (php.ini)

    ; On Windows the filename is php_mysqnd_memcache.dll
    ; Load the extension
    ; Enable it

    Follow the instructions given in the » MySQL Reference Manual on installing
    the Memcache plugins
    for the MySQL server. Activate the plugins
    and configure Memcache access for SQL tables.

    The examples in this quickguide assume that the
    following table exists, and that Memcache is configured with access
    to it.

    Example #2 SQL table used for the

    CREATE TABLE test(
      id CHAR(16),
      f1 VARCHAR(255),
      f2 VARCHAR(255),
      f3 VARCHAR(255),
      flags INT NOT NULL,
      cas_column INT,
      expire_time_column INT,
      PRIMARY KEY(id)
      ) ENGINE=InnoDB;
    INSERT INTO test (id, f1, f2, f3) VALUES (1, 'Hello', 'World', '!');
    INSERT INTO test (id, f1, f2, f3) VALUES (2, 'Lady', 'and', 'the tramp');
    INSERT INTO innodb_memcache.containers(
      name, db_schema, db_table, key_columns, value_columns, 
      flags, cas_column, expire_time_column, unique_idx_name_on_key)
    VALUES (
      'plugin_test', 'test', 'test', 'id', 'f1,f2,f3',
      'flags', 'cas_column', 'expire_time_column', 'PRIMARY KEY');
