    Hi, cPanel users,

    This is a pre-release of LiteSpeed Web Server Plugin for WHM v0.1. Documentation is still missing. However you can try it now. Since it is a pre-release with incomplete document, please try it with caution. If it is production machine, please make sure you understand all the terms before click "Next".

    LiteSpeed Web Server Plugin for WHM is a tool to easily integrate and manage LiteSpeed web server with cPanel. Once installed, it can be accessed from cPanel WebHost Manager Plugins section.

    Main functionalities:
    1.Install/Uninstall LiteSpeed Web Server.
    2.Build Matching PHP Binary.
    3.One click switch between Apache and LiteSpeed.
    4.Restart LiteSpeed web server and link to LiteSpeed Administration web console.

    Install/Uninstall LiteSpeed Web Server Plugin for WHM

    This is for the WHM plugin itself and will not affect LiteSpeed web server installation. You can have LiteSpeed web server installed before you use this plugin. Also uninstall this plugin will not affect LiteSpeed web server running.

    Installation is really simple, follow the below steps as a root user

    Code:
    cd /usr/src
    wget http://www.litespeedtech.com/packages/cpanel/lsws_whm_plugin_install.sh
    chmod 700 lsws_whm_plugin_install.sh
    ./lsws_whm_plugin_install.sh
    rm -f lsws_whm_plugin_install.sh
    
    Login to WHM, "LiteSpeed Web Server Plugin for WHM" should show up in WHM "Plugins" section.
    Now you can then install/manage LiteSpeed Web Server from WHM.

    After your LiteSpeed web server installed, you can try to build matching php binary with LSAPI. This will assure all your php scripts still work like under Apache.

    If you upgrade or reconfigure your php through WHM easyapache, then you need to rebuild matching php binary from here.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Lauren
