For anyone who is experiencing a similar problem, I solved it by locating all connections on Port 80 by using
lsof -i tcp:80
...from SSH terminal. Then kill all of those connections using
kill -9 <pid number>
Then I stopped apache
service httpd stop
Then I did a graceful restart of Litespeed from the Litespeed control panel. Now it works perfectly and I was able to login to phpmyadmin and Litespeed is registering on php info and all looks good.
