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.

Concurrent Connections Demystified

Friday, April 26th, 2013

One of the most common questions we get goes something like this: “I have a forum with 3,000 users and the VPS license says it has a limit of 500 concurrent connections. That’s not enough for me, right?” Actually, 50 concurrent connections is probably enough for you. This misconception stems from a misunderstanding as to what a concurrent connection is. In this post, I will try to address this misunderstanding.  (more…)

Setting Up Multiple PHP Versions

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Here at LiteSpeed, we are in the midst of a major overhaul of our documentation. It’s a lot of hard work — like carving granite with tweezers — but we don’t want to make you wait till it’s finished to get some of the benefits. So, on the blog, we will be sharing tips about how you can make LSWS run better for you. Today’s post is an overview of setting up multiple PHP versions when you use a control panel (though it will work if you don’t use a control panel as well). (more…)
