Configuration How-Tos

This section of the wiki provides articles on configuring LiteSpeed Web Server to achieve desired functionality, better performance, or security. These wikis do not cover what each LSWS setting does. That information can be found in our documentation.

Also LiteSpeed Cache, PHP, and other external applications (Python, Ruby, etc.) are covered in their own sections of the wiki and are not included here.
