Editing XML config to set up Litespeed/Rails
I'm trying to get Litespeed 3.1.1-std set up on a shared host, and as I do not have SSL enabled I want to use just an ssh commandline (to avoid sending admin passwords over HTTP). I am going nuts trying to use the admin UI with the "lynx" text-mode browser -- I can see the UI ok, but it is not at all easy to use. Are there instructions somewhere for setting up virtual hosts and a simple ruby-lsapi Rails config by just editing the XML conf/* files? Or do I have to create an identical config on a local machine and then copy the XML config files across?
Litespeed+LSAPI is really useful as a fast, low-footprint server for Rails, but I haven't yet found admin-level docs that tell me which config files to edit to set up Virtual hosts etc. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
