Another Apache / LiteSpeed how-to question
I own a small web server (running debian 3.1) with several clients. I have read through this site and the free litespeed edition seems right for me.
what I want to do is this:
Have apache2 continue running as my main webserver app on port 80 but have it redirect requests for static content, i.e. .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .png to my litespeed installation running on port 88. This can easily dbe done with mod_proxy apache2 module, the only other problems I see are to get litespeed to "know" my vhost installation so that it knows what static content to serve and where to get it.
so how would I start this?
- install litespeed
- make a separate user for it (requiered? useful?)
- make it "learn" my vhost settings from apache2 (how?)
- start litespeed and test if it serves the content right
- implement the mod_proxy directives for a testsite so that apache2 serves everything except images
any hints and help is welcome.
btw. I really need this as my apache2 processes are bloated up to 24MB and those huge processes are mainly serving static content as my main client and also the biggest one basically have a huge coppermine gallery...
