I know what has to be done to MANUALLY edit the .htaccess. But what I reported is simple - When you add a site redirect inside CPANEL the rewrite rules it puts in the .htaccess do not work with litespeed which means litespeed is not fully compatible with cpanel.
I or other hosts cannot simply wait until a client trys to add a redirect, see it not work, put in ticket and manually edit their .htaccess.
take it how you will, I dont need to know what to put where. It does not work default with cpanel on a fresh server so therefore I think is a legit bug request.
Also I have already tried what you suggested, commenting out the rewritecond, same thing.
