Install php-memcached for PHP 7.3 on bionic.

Asked by Sophie Freshwater on 2021-04-10

On Ubuntu 18.04 I am trying to install php-memcached for PHP 7.3.
Both PHP7.3 and PHP8 are installed.
apt-get install php-memcached results in selecting php8.0-memcached instead.
I have tried to specify a specific version for PHP7.3. I used apt-cache policy to get a list of options. There are only two:
Version table:
     3.1.5+2.2.0-9+ubuntu18.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 500
        500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/ondrej/php/ubuntu bionic/main amd64 Packages
     3.0.1+2.2.0-1build2 500
        500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic/universe amd64 Packages

So I tried `apt-get install php-memcached=3.0.1+2.2.0-1build2` but that results in an install for PHP7.2.

How can I install the PHP memcached module for PHP 7.3?

You have added a PPA so I suggest you contact the PPA maintainers to see if they can assist

There is no supported version of php 7.3 in Ubuntu bionic.

Apparently your php version comes from a PPA. In such case you probably also have to find a version of php-memcached from a PPA or other foreign source fitting to your php version.

Maybe one of the PPAs listed in https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name_filter=php-memcached delivers what you want.
But remember, these are PPAs in responsibility of the respective providers, and not covered by Ubuntu support.

Can you help with this problem?
