Very basic questions

    We currently have a site that runs on an Apache server. The site has a shop that relies on .htaccess to protect the products. We're considering a switch to a server that runs Litespeed, but have some concerns about the translation of the .htaccess files since I see from various posts here that the syntax is somewhat different.

    1. Does Litespeed even use .htaccess files or is there a different way to accomplish the same task?

    2. If LS does read .htaccess files, is there a wiki or tutorial of some kind that can help with translating Apache->Litespeed?

    Thank you for any replies.

    We've had just about no problems with LSWS working with .htaccess files. Might help if you tell us a bit more about what is in the .htaccess etc.

    There is no need to translate the .htaccess from Apache for it to work with Litespeed. Maybe in some odd cases where a rule needs to be tweaked. That's one of the big selling points.

    Thanks very much for your replies. You have removed one of our concerns about the switch. Now we can get down to making the switch.

    Thanks again.
