    Hey guys,
    Is it possible to move the SERVER_ROOT/conf directory out of the SERVER_ROOT? I was going to move it to a "shared" location, to be able to have 2 or more litespeed servers sharing the same config files. This way all the servers in particular can have the exact same setup.

    dunno about moving but you could mount a shared drive on that location.
    I for one are just rsync'ing the conf.

    It is not recommended, at least for the httpd_config.xml, for other configuration files, the file locations are configurable.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I may have to resort to rsync solutions, but would like to know if it is possible to move the conf dir.
    Thanks again ts77.

    Do you recommend the rsync solution,, or is there another way to share configs among different servers? I know that many of the config files can have their PATH changed, but not for httpd_conf.xml which is what Im trying to share. Perhaps if I symlinked it to a shared location?
    ln -s conf/httpd_conf.xml /mnt/shared_foo

    Thanks again

    You can give it a try. It might work.
