In Laravel, you can dynamically set memcached servers by using the Memcached class provided by the Memcached extension. Here's how you can dynamically set memcached servers in Laravel:

  1. First, make sure you have the Memcached extension installed in your PHP environment. You can install it using pecl:
1
pecl install memcached


  1. Once the Memcached extension is installed, you can use it in your Laravel application. Here's an example of how you can dynamically set memcached servers in Laravel:

use Memcached;

$memcached = new Memcached();
$memcached->addServer('server1', 11211);
$memcached->addServer('server2', 11211);

// Set the configuration in Laravel's cache configuration
config(['cache.stores.memcached.servers' => [
    [
        'host' => 'server1',
        'port' => 11211,
        'weight' => 100,
    ],
    [
        'host' => 'server2',
        'port' => 11211,
        'weight' => 100,
    ],
]]);

// Use the configured memcached servers in your application
Cache::store('memcached')->put('key', 'value', $minutes);


  1. In the example above, we first create a new Memcached object and add two servers (server1 and server2) to it. We then set the configuration for the memcached servers in Laravel's cache configuration by using the config helper function. Finally, we can use the configured memcached servers in our application by using the Cache facade.


By dynamically setting memcached servers in Laravel, you can easily scale your application by adding or removing servers as needed.
