Installer proceeds after failure to save password

    It's reasonably well documented (via Google at least) that LiteSpeed Standard requires the 64-bit adaptor library for it to run on 64-bit servers. Can't the installer detect if this condition hasn't been met and alert the user?

    Some of the problems that occur if you fail to do this before running the installer can be quite subtle. I installed lsws-3.3.9-std-i386-linux on a Slicehost virtual Ubuntu Feisty server without first installing the required 64-bit adaptor library. Then installed the 64-bit adaptor library and all appeared OK until I tried to login to the web console - couldn't log in. Looked back at the installation output and noticed this:

    Retype password: 
    ./ 19: /home/david/lsws-3.3.9/admin/fcgi-bin/admin_php: not found
    Note that the remainder of the installation procedure proceeded without error. This failure to save the password warrants some special alert.

    Love this web server, by the way :)
