memcached dead but pid file exists
memcached starts but it stops immediately.
When running status, it says
memcached dead but pid file exists and when running
ps aux | grep memcached you can't see the pid file to kill it.
On CentOS you can go to /etc/sysconfig/memcached and check your configuration. In my case I had a redundant directive at the OPTIONS line where I was redeclaring the port. This is my memcached config file now.
