What do you mean by "didnt try to use memcache"?

No, it wouldn't.  SSI only supports URI local to server in 
question (i.e. path only).  If you need to include some external 
URL you have to configure appropriate proxy_pass.  E.g.

    <!--#include virtual="/example-com-myuser" -->

and in nginx.conf:

    location = /example-com-myuser {
