Message cache setting
Introduced in version: 1.5.0

Allowed values: One of the CACHE constants (see below)
Default value: CACHE_ANYTHING
Other settings: Alphabetical | By function


Message cache setting.

Here are the available CACHE constants, as defined in Defines.php

  • CACHE_ANYTHING - Use anything, as long as it works
  • CACHE_NONE - Do not cache
  • CACHE_DB - Store cache objects in the DB
  • CACHE_MEMCACHED - memcachedmemcached, must specify servers in $wgMemCachedServersManual:$wgMemCachedServers
  • CACHE_ACCEL - APC, APCu, WinCache or XCache, whichever is available
  • CACHE_DBA (removed in 1.23) - Use PHP's DBA extension to store in a DBM-style database


If you set $wgMainCacheTypeManual:$wgMainCacheType then the values for $wgParserCacheTypeManual:$wgParserCacheType and $wgMessageCacheType will inherit it. You do not need to set those variables unless you plan on doing something very advanced.
