Plesk 8 compability?

    I just tried to install LSWS 3.0 RC2 Standard on a Plesk server and enable port 81 for lsws. I enabled load Apache configuration at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restarted the webserver. It now keeps saying Restart Required for all the IPs and vhosts. Do I need to create a vhost template first? Do I need to enter a port in the Apache offset port? I want to test lsws on port 81 first.

    A few more questions regarding Plesk compatibility:
    - does it support password protected directory properly? Plesk stores the password file inside the "/pd" directory differently.
    - does it support web user feature in Plesk?
    - Plesk stores httpd.include in each vhost/conf directory. Will Litespeed read each of this file properly?

    Thank you!

    You need to set port offset to "1", so LSWS will use port 81.
    As long as it uses standard Apache directives, it should work.

    Do you mean the /~username/..., it is not supported directly, but can be archived with some rewrite rules.

    Yes.

    Thanks, I've set the port offset to 1 and restart lsws but it keeps saying Restart Required for all the IPs and vhosts. Do I need to create a vhost template first?

    No, you dont need to create a vhost template when use Apache httpd.conf directly.

    You can check if port 81 is open with command "netstat -an | grep 81 | grep LISTEN". If it is, try to access a vhost on port 81.

    The "restart required" status for all IP and vhosts in web admin console might be a false alarm.

    If you cannot make it work, please send us a sample httpd.conf and a vhost configuration file, we will test it.
