A previous admin installed memcached on a single server Zimbra instance. As noted in many places, running memcached on a single server installation appears to cause issues. This is an Ubuntu server.

I've disabled memcached but I'd like to completely remove it so that next time we run an upgrade it doesn't get installed and upgraded.

So, my question is: can I safely just run apt-get --purge remove zimbra-memcached and just restart Zimbra and/or just reboot the server?

Would appreciate any ideas/feedback. Thanks in advance.
