cPanel Support: The Official Position

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Update: cPanel now officially supports LiteSpeed Web Server!

We have a lot of users using cPanel, and sometimes cPanel support for LSWS users can be something of a thorny issue.

The lsup Command: Update Many Installations in One Stroke

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

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 command: 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:

/usr/local/lsws/admin/misc/lsup.sh

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.
