LSCWPReviews

In early January, we blogged about the great feedback that our LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress (LSCWP) was receiving. Since it’s official release on January 20th, LSCWP has continued to receive very positive feedback. Three months and 2,000 downloads later, we thought we’d share some of this feedback and how it has shaped the development of our LSCWP plugin.

LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress

We are very excited to announce that our first official release of the LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for WordPress has arrived on WordPress’s own plugin directory!

Released last week, LiteSpeed Cache for WordPress (LSCWP) uses the LSCache plugin for WordPress to communicate with LiteSpeed Web Server and LSCache to statically cache your dynamic WordPress pages, greatly reducing page load time and server load. As development continues, we will be adding many more features – such as ESI support similar to what can be seen in LiteMage Cache for Magento.

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!

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.

Getting the Best WordPress Performance

Wordpress Bechmark

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. But what about WordPress performance in a real world situation?

According to W3Techs’ usage report, WordPress is used by 24.3% of all the websites and holds 58.7% of the content management system market share. As the #1 content management system, we want to see how fast WordPress can be in a real world environment.

Based on the results of the Hello World Benchmark Test, we now know that LiteSpeed and OpenLiteSpeed have the smallest IPC overhead and provides the best performance for PHP 7 and HHVM of the web servers tested. We will be using OpenLiteSpeed to do the 2nd benchmark test where we will be targeting a sample WordPress site to see the performance difference. We know from our first test that PHP 7 is 140% faster than HHVM on hello world. How about when using WordPress?

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.
