George, I'm able to deploy a VMWare stack with all the goodies and Litespeed and able to run my application perfectly. However, when I deploy the same code to my BlueBox VPS my photos won't save. The BlueBox people took my same code and deployed in an Ngnix and Mongrel configuration and it worked fine. Do you have any ideas where I should look? Below is their message; Thank you, David We did some further testing, and it doesn't appear the the problem is with imagemagick/rmagick, or your application code, but in litespeed. As a test, we used mongrel to run another instance of your application, and with nothing else changed, jpg uploads started working. We took a look at your litespeed admin console, and found the following is the error that's generated when you get the 503 error: "[188.8.131.52:53313-4#windspar] connection to [uds://tmp/lshttpd/windspar:_.sock] on request #0, error: Connection reset by peer!"
