    I see a lot of benchmarks comparing litespeed with apache, but not many comparing them across OSes. Apache rocks and blazes on FreeBSD. Is there any benchmark that will allow me to compare litespeed on CentOS (the regular hosting choice these days) and FreeBSD latest?

    Many thanks

    Never compared this two, from our past experiences, FreeBSD and Linux has similar performance with LiteSpeed.

    Thanks, I'd like to see how FreeBSD and Apache compare with FreeBSD and LiteSpeed. When you have time.

    I think the thing that will make LiteSpeed a no-brainer for me would be support for some KEY modules like mod_security, mod_evasive -- only carefully chosen ones.

    just a comment:

    > support for some KEY modules

    You mean porting some key modules? ;)
    Its not simply supporting them IMO but they need to be rewritten for litespeed as the internals are totally different from apache.

    LSWS has anti-DoS feature already and it is better implemented than Apache's mod_evasive, mod_security equivalent is under development.

    That's great mitswang and ts77. I would really like things like mod_geoip to work with litespeed. Thanks.

    We could not integrate GeoIP with LSWS before because it is GPL licensed. Just found that they changed to LGPL license on the C Library, so we can go ahead with the integration, should be available in 3.0 release. :)
