I agree 100% with what raphidae said. Litespeed is a beautiful piece of engineering and well worth the investment, but PLEASE do not ruin it by taking things for granted. We need more documentation, how-to's and clear and detailed changelogs. On a clean install, created new virtual host and:
*failed to create file /ownpath/towww/youdomain/conf/vhconf.xml
I created the file by hand, set chmod/chown/chgrp and all I can think of, and same error. This thread here explains the reason.
