I recently submitted a support ticket regarding the fact that when trying to use a socket in order to enable caching via memcache you get an error. I was told that support for web sockets is not core functionality. I believe that this is a major oversight in the caching mechanism as sockets are pretty common. I tend to use them whenever I can when setting up a server. My PHP-FPM install uses a socket rather than server/port, memcache uses a socket and so on. Sockets are regarded as faster as the IP address/Port combination doesn't have to be resolved at all. They're also just way more simply to set up.

Please at least consider adding support for this. I was surprised to find it missing when it's been available in other software for a while (MyBB supports it for example - the software I've come here from and a free software...)

No thoughts on this at all anybody? I'm really eager to get memcache working properly.

Are you talking about unix domain sockets? They're prefered if available.
Web sockets is something completely different.

I guess I am. I get mixed up with terminology sometimes ;) I know socket files are preferred to the traditional IP:port setup and that's why I always use them.
