defeat buffered output in PHP for realtime display?

    Some of the tricks I try to use in PHP to typically defeat the output buffering to diagnose the output of long scripts does not seem to be working with LiteSpeed.

    I suspect this is because LiteSpeed tries to gather the output so it can compress+chunk it (typically in 4k blocks).

    Is there any trick I can use to defeat the buffer effect on a per-script basis?

    None of these solve the problem:
    ini_set('output_buffering', 0);
    ini_set('implicit_flush', 1);

    It took a bit of googling but I found the answer that works on apache and I believe it works on LiteSpeed as well:

    after each echo, or other output, put a:
    ob_flush(); flush();

    (I had only put ob_flush(); )

    Hi there.

    Sorry to bump a 4 year old thread but I couldn't find a more relevant thread and I'm having the same issues.

    No matter what variations of code I use I'm not able to flush the output buffer



    Has anyone else been able to successfully flush(); ?

    Please note that I've disabled gzip compression (and dynamic compress) on litespeed and it's made no difference

    Persistant Connection is on, Instances is set to 1, Response Buffering is set to No.

    Is Response Buffering the issue here?
