Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
If no cache handler is setup or defined, Authcache will fallback to Drupal core
database cache tables and "Authcache Debug" will say "cache_inc: database"
But in fact it seems that you need to add the path to authcache.inc
This is what worked for me:
$conf['cache_backends'] = 'sites/all/modules/contrib/authcache/authcache.inc';
Should I patch docs to indicate this or should the module be fixed so in fact the setting is not needed?
