#27152 closed Cleanup/optimization (fixed)

Comma-delimited servers list not supported in memcached caches `LOCATION`

Currently Django's memcached backends only support a semicolon delimited servers list in the cache config, such as:

    'default': {
        'LOCATION': ';',

This is because the backend just does:

    self._servers = server.split(';')

However cloud memcached offerings such as Memcachier and Memcached Cloud typically use a comma-delimited list in the automatically set environment variable, eg:


Given that the caches LOCATION parameter contains only domain name and port (and not say passwords), it should never contain a comma - so we should be fine to also split on them too.

I guess server.replace(',', ';').split(';') should work.
