$wgOpenIDServerStoreType and $wgOpenIDConsumerStoreType need to support something other than 'file'
Open, NormalPublic

Description

The documentation comments for $wgOpenIDServerStoreType and $wgOpenIDConsumerStoreType say valid values are 'file', 'memcached', and 'db'. But https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenID says the only valid value is 'file', and "memc" is no longer valid.

I hope that https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:OpenID is out of date and 'memcached' is supported, so this can be a simple doc fix. Writing to the local filesystem won't work too well when subsequent requests may be sent to other servers in the cluster.

'memcached' is supported, so this can be a simple doc fix. Writing to the

filesystem won't work too well when subsequent requests may be sent to other
servers in the cluster.

Unfortunately it is not only a documentation problem. The matter (to enable memcached as storage) has been discussed in spring 2013 with Ryan and Chris, but then other important things in MediaWiki as such had to be fixed.

Thanks for filing this as an issue.

(just for the records, an older citation from the README file:

Check that your consumer and server stores are correct. The original maintainer got tired of maintaining the MemcStore that nobody seemed to want, so if you used that, you need to use the filestore now. See below for how to configure it...
