    I got license off third party site got it installed however it seems that it won't run with having apache I can't get it to run alone I've been missing with this for the second day.. I'd appreciate some type of direction to go

    Honestly If I known I needed collage degree in computer engineering to run litespeed I never would have gotten a license

    What is the port or does it run on the same port as apache ? (90% of examples out there don't say anything about that)

    You got to have some basic knowledge to run Apache or LSWS. You can google it what the "http port" means. don't think you need college degree to understand it.

    Back to your issue, basically, you can not have both apache and lsws listen on http port (TCP port 80) at the same time. To work around it, do either of the below:

    1) Stop apache and have lsws listen on http port
    If you use cpanel, go to WHM=>plugins=>LiteSpeed Web Server=>Switch to LiteSpeed. That should do it.
    2) Have apache run on http port and lsws run on a different port (Offset port).
    If you use cpanel, go to WHM=>plugins=>LiteSpeed Web Server=>LiteSpeed Port Offset =>Change=> 2000. Then reststart LiteSpeed.

    I'm beginning to think its the server it self simply cause neither apache or lite speed will work.

    The server has been crap time to find different forum thank you for your help I really appreciate it

    You are welcome. Usually make sure Apache runs first before switch to LSWS. That will save you time getting LSWS works for you.

    Do you mean LSWS was working before but not now? How long have you run it? Is your license still valid? go to LSWS plugin => License Management => Check Status


    run below from command line to verify

    Bacon you can see if its a port problem by changing LS from port 80 to any other and restart. If its start then there is another webserver running.

    to disable apache check for org.apache.httpd.plist file on any of this directories and remove it. then it wont start.



    (that is in mac, not sure if it applies to linux)
