    I am trying to migrate my new VPS from apache to LSWS.

    I have signed up for a trial license until such time I have got it configured correctly before moving my permant license from my old server.

    I have installed LSWS, but having problems starting LSWS. When I am looking at the error logs I am seeing:-

    What does that mean?

    cPanel and it actually installed the cPanel plugin that lets me control it through that.

    And even when I try using that to restart/switch it, I get the same error

    You should remove /usr/local/lsws or the directory that LSWS installed to, then start from scratch.
    If you select cPanel, "nobody" user is used instead of "apache". So, you must be selected something other than cPanel when you first install LSWS.
