Can Litespeed be used as both a webserver and a load balancer?
Please help me, thanks in advance.
Yes, it can.
to setup as a loadbalancer (along with webserver), create loadbalancer external app with lsapi or proxy/webserver type member. then create loadbalancer type script handler (either server or vhost level) or context (vhost level) on top of the loadbalancer external app.
note that such a "loadbalancer" setup has no session awareness.
I am really a newbie at Litespeed, can you point me to any document that can guide me through this?
Moreover, what is the difference between session awareness and unawareness?
Why does one need it?
Thanks very much.
session is for web site to track individual user such as login, etc. without session awareness, a user will be redirected to a different backend and prompt for login again even s/he already logged in.
