    How to auto restart litespeed if failed? the auto-restart on server configuration doesnt seem to work, my site has went down twice and it never came back up with that auto-restart thingy.

    i had to login to ssh and manually type restart in order to come back up

    That's pretty strange, is there any lshttpd process running when you restarted it manually?

    Have you set Auto Restart to yes?

    no lshttpd are running while it crashed, auto restart is on yes.

    i cant even get into the console neither.

    it crashes when it runs out of ram and it wouldnt come back up or auto-restart

    Which process used up the memory? lshttpd? PHP?
    lshttpd will not able to start new process if memory is used up, have to release the memory first.

    php is, is there an automated process to do that?

    You should limit the memory PHP can use, reduce number of PHP processes, prevent it from using all your memory.

    thanks, i've done what you adviced me.

    Offtopic question:

    Is there a way to limit bandwidth usage on a virtual host?

    I meant like how hosting companies limit a user's monthly bandwidth limit to like 100gb, is there a way litespeed can do it?

    Hosting control panels usually analyze the access log or dedicate traffic log and limit the usage. You can do the same with LiteSpeed.

    LiteSpeed internally will not provide this feature.

    As far as I know, not directly. But you can use the bytelogging ability of Litespeed and have an automated process tally the bandwidth every so often and automatically shut down a site using the various methods at your disposal, namely rewrite rules.

    I'm using the litespeed 4.0.13 enterprice version. i got the same issue the auto-restart on server configuration doesnt seem to work. the site was went down 2-3 times per day, i have to ssh manually restart the litespeed.

    my case is different, there are 2 lshttpd was running with 100% CPU usage, my linux box still have ard 1GB ++ free memory available when the litespeed went down.

    btw i have enable both Auto Restart and Auto Fix 503 Error.

    If it happen repeatedly, please contact bug@litespeedtech.... for instruction on using debug build of LSWS and "strace", "gdb" to help identifying the issue.
