The release of LiteSpeed Web Server 5.0 will be a major jump for HTTP servers, making new levels of functionality and performance available to many sites.
Here are the advances included in the first release candidate for LSWS 5.0: (more…)
Our newest case study shows how WiredTree uses LiteSpeed Web Server to save their users from having to upgrade their hardware. (more…)
LiteSpeed has just released a free addon for WHMCS that allows resellers to integrate WHMCS with their LiteSpeed account and LiteSpeed’s licensing system. This allows vendors to resell and keep track of LiteSpeed licenses more easily. (more…)
We have a lot of users using cPanel, and sometimes cPanel support for LSWS users can be something of a thorny issue. Some users have gotten the impression that cPanel will not support them just because they use LiteSpeed. cPanel and LiteSpeed want to assure you that this is not the case. I spoke with Brian Oates, cPanel’s Technical Support Manager, recently about how a support ticket should go: (more…)
Back from the cPanel Conference in New Orleans, where I had a wonderful time. Still getting used to cold shoulders after that Southern hospitality. The best part of the conferences, for me, is getting to meet all our customers — to hear your gripes and success stories and talk about the future together. I want to take this chance to extend the opportunity to give feedback beyond just the people that are able to make it to the conferences. If you have anything (LiteSpeed related) you want to talk to us about, please let us know. Email or call or make yourself known on the forums. We can’t do everything everybody wants, but getting an idea of what everybody wants will help guide where we go.
Just a quick post to let everyone know I will be in New Orleans for the cPanel Conference. Looking forward to a roaring good time, lots of cPanel updates, and, hopefully, lots of LiteSpeed users. Contact me through the sales email if you’d like to meet up. (I’m always interested in feedback, questions, and feature requests.)
We’re adding more command line functions to make it easier to automate multiple installations of LSWS. With that in mind, we introduce the
lsup allows you to upgrade (or downgrade) your version of LSWS from the command line. The executable is located at
$SERVER_ROOT/admin/misc/lsup.sh. Running this basic command automatically upgrades your installation of LSWS to the autoupdate release. (This does not mean the latest release, but the latest release that has been deemed stable enough for autoupdate.) In a basic installation on CentOS, this command would thus be:
The command can be further customized to upgrade to, downgrade to, or reinstall specific versions. These options are explained in the lsup wiki article.
This command was the result of requests from our users. If there are other functions you want to see, please let us know.
Over the past few weeks we’ve been adding many new articles to OpenLiteSpeed’s documentation. (more…)
LiteSpeed Web Server has a lot of settings. It’s true. We know. These settings are helpful to tweak and fine tune your server. But sometimes, when you’re just getting started with a new environment, feature, or application, all those settings can be overwhelming. That is why we are introducing custom virtual host templates. These templates give you virtual hosts ready to perform different functions or use with different applications. You can still customize and tune different parts of the setup if you want, but these templates will give you a workable LSWS for your particular function in just a few quick and easy steps. (more…)
