OLS Stopwatch

 
A few weeks back, Jarrod from rootusers.com posted a benchmark that demonstrated that when handling small static files, Nginx outperformed our OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, particularly during the 1 and 2 CPU Core tests. We decided to dig deeper and investigate these results.

LSWS 5.0.3 Updated To Fix Forced SSL On Google Chrome Version 44.0.2403.89

Friday, July 24th, 2015

The latest Google Chrome version 44.0.2403.89 is currently redirecting all HTTP URLs to their HTTPS versions for certain web applications. This is caused by a bug in Chrome causing the “HTTPS: 1” header to be sent by default on every request. This is mainly causing problems for WordPress sites with the WooCommerce plugin installed as well as sites without HTTPS support. Because of WordPress and WooCommerce’s popularity, this bug may be affecting a large number of people.

Pioneering HTTP/2

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

litespeed-driving-http2

At LiteSpeed Technologies we are always striving to incorporate the newest and best cutting-edge technologies into our family of web servers. This of course extends to the new HTTP/2 network protocol standard (published May 2015). We are proud to have been ahead of the curve in this by providing HTTP/2 support as early as January 23rd for OpenLiteSpeed and April 17th for our Enterprise edition. Apache does not yet have a production quality HTTP/2 module while NGINX’s HTTP/2 support will not be available in 2015.

Disable LiteSpeed PHP Timeouts (for BackupBuddy, etc.)

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

Long-running PHP processes, as a result of a poorly written script or a DoS attack, can kill your server’s resources. This is why LiteSpeed Web Server has a number of features to automatically abort these processes.

Sometimes, though, users have a process they need to run for a long time. (BackupBuddy is a prime example of this.) For these users, we’ve recently revamped our guide to disabling PHP timeouts. This guide takes you through all the features that could cause a process to end before it’s finished, and how to tweak them. If you’re trying to configure LiteSpeed Web Server to work with BackupBuddy, ImportBuddy, or any other WordPress module that relies on a WP built-in cron job, this is just the guide for you.

We’re always adding more documentation. If you have an issue or feature that you’d like to see documented, let us know on our forum.
