Litespeed vs Apache
This is my experience with litespeed in last 14 days:
Litespeed is not fully compatible with CloudLinux and this is very bad! it seams that users don't use any ram resource. All ram used by lsws process!
-Apache is compatible with it.
Litespeed is almost compatible with apache configuration and .htaccess.
but webserver should restart to find any parked domain added! this is not good. apache binary wrapper not worked for me.
for me so far, Apache is very fast webserver. It process requests in milliseconds
Litespeed response a bit slower. you can see this : http://www.litespeedtech.com/support...ead.php?t=6515
As litespeed is not compatible with CloudLinux, It cause server to be goes down with some accounts. I know connection limit and ... in lsws but they can not restrict huge usage websites. they limit end users only.
when I use apache server load is always below 1 (with more than 2000 connections to apache)
when I use lsws, server load goes to 3 to 6 with about 300 HTTP USED in realtime stat
Litespeed is more secure for amateur users. It prevent symlink and access to some directories.
All security tips can be applied to apache for pro users.
Litespeed is not free
Apache is free
Unfortunately I forced to turn back to apache.
I hope you don't delete this topic and use it to enhance Litespeed features.
