First, we would like to thank each and every one of you for trying out LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress. We’re proud to see that there are 30,000+ active WordPress sites running LiteSpeed Cache. There was an enormous effort to make this plugin the easiest and most efficient caching solution for both WordPress users and hosts. Our latest release of 1.0.14.1 includes some exciting User Interface changes that hopefully simplify things for the administrator/user.

Can Your Magento Do This?

Wednesday, October 5th, 2016

We’re excited to share a quick LiteSpeed customer success story from one of our European partners running a large-scale Magento site supporting a popular television program.

Every week during the program, the Magento store is supported by a 6-node cluster front ended by a LiteSpeed Load Balancer with LiteMage cache. Stats from this past week are pretty amazing.

LiteSpeed Fast

Recently, there have been a number of large-scale brute-force attacks on WordPress sites. These attacks try to bypass WordPress security by attempting to log in with every possible combination of username and password, sometimes sending thousands of requests per second.

Since these attacks began, one of our clients had all 50 of his hosted WordPress sites simultaneously attacked. He was able to mitigate these attacks using LiteSpeed’s mod_security rules, but wanted a way to easily and automatically block these IPs at the server level.

We responded within an hour – modifying our code and publishing a new build that allowed the client to add offending IP addresses to the blocked IP list using mod_security rules. These IPs can then be easily grabbed from the blocked IP list and added to the server level firewall using a script – stopping the connection at the network level before it ever reaches LiteSpeed Web Server.

That’s the kind of speed you can expect from LiteSpeed!

PHP 7 vs HHVM Benchmark Series 3: How fast can WordPress go?

Friday, September 4th, 2015

race-to-the-finish-2-of-21_650x300

In our previous PHP 7 vs HHVM benchmark, Benchmark Series 2: WordPress, we saw HHVM outperform PHP 7 by 7% on WordPress. That test was performed without any cache involvement to test pure HHVM and PHP 7 performance. In our recent Getting the Best WordPress Performance article, we saw just how much of a difference a page cache can make in regards to WordPress performance.
