I'm modifying settings in the admin page but they are not taking effect.If i disable some login methods they are still available on the main forum page.Likewise if i click save, the settings still appear as if i had not modified them, what could be wrong.

Your cache setup could be wrong. Configure redis cache or memcached for the production use.

How exactly do you configure memcached setting in the settings file, i've tried messing around with the settings file but i just can't get it to work, and how to you test if memcached is actually working?

Firstly - use pymemcache - the Python implementation. The C implementation is buggy. Django project has documentation for the cache setup, please have a look.

I'm getting the following error when i add the memcached settings as indicated in the docs: ImproperlyConfigured: Error importing middleware django.contrib.sessions.middleware: "No module named memcache"

Take a look at hosting providers documentation on how to set up memcache for django. In this case you are missing a module indeed.

i followed the memcached setup procedure from the hosting provider, now im getting the following errors: in asbot.log; ImportError: No module named cache_db in server log: VariableDoesNotExist: Failed lookup for key [request] in u'[{}]' what could be the problem, i've switched to using postgres but still the same problem.
