    Can someone please suggest optimal vBulletin + DBSEO settings to work alongside Lite Speed?

    My htaccess as of now:

    Note: I had these 3 lines originally in my htaccess <ifModule mod_expires.c> section and the site zipped through every page, but I always had to F5 refresh to see actual new content I've posted or others posted.

    Code:
    ExpiresActive On
    ExpiresDefault "access plus 1 year"
    ExpiresByType text/html "access plus 1 year"
    Code:
    RewriteEngine On
    
    RewriteBase /
    
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\.mydomain\.com
    RewriteRule (.*)  http://www.mydomain.com/$1 [L,R=301]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !(adminxxxxx/|modsxxxxx/|cron)
    RewriteRule ^((archive/)?(.*\.php(/.*)?)?)$ dbseo.php [L,QSA]
    
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !^(adminxxxxx|modsxxxxx|clientscript|cpstyles|images|gallery)/
    RewriteRule ^(.+)$ dbseo.php [L,QSA]

    Litespeed config is default as of now. Running PHP 5.4, vBulletin 4.2 and MySQL 5.5

    litespeed web admin's Actions -> Real-Time Stats is a good place to watch the performance.

    install php opcache will drop the server load and make page faster if not yet.

    is it a apache virtual host(load from httpd.conf) or lsws native virtual host ?

    I'm running cPanel box which by default uses Apache, so the virtual host is in httpd.conf.

    What should I be looking for in the real time stats? I'm looking at it now but not sure what to look for to determine an changes needed.

    I want vbulletin to run at lightning speed like before, but the probably is once I removed those lines from the htaccess I mentioned in my OP, it's not fast again.

    I don't see any module option for opcache in WHM > Easy Apache.

    you can post a screenshot of Real-Time Stats during the busiest time, to see if anything interesting can be found.

    usually WHM/cPanel is used for shared hosting, can manage hundreds or thousands of different user accounts. so for security reason, run php in suEXEC mode:
    lsws web admin -> Server -> General -> PHP suEXEC: Yes

    if only 1 user account on the server, you can set "PHP suEXEC: No". this will improve the performance, you can try and compare.

    there should be XCache option in WHM -> Easy Apache. xcache is one of opcode cache implementations.

    Thanks. I just compiled with xcache. Any specific xcache config I should use with litespeed?

    Does litespeed *automatically* Build Matching LSPHP after I run easy apache? I don't see anything happening as far as that goes right now.

    no special setting for litespeed or lsphp, check if it works by check the phpinfo page.

    there is a option for "Build Matching LSPHP": WHM litespeed plugin -> "Enable EasyApache Integration"
    if it's not enabled, need manually click "Build Matching LSPHP"
