    Hello, I'm trying to install Litespeed (Enterprise version) on my VPS server which runs cPanel/WHM using the tutorial posted here,

    I've installed Litespeed and it is currently running on my server, but I have no idea whatsoever how I can access the admin panel. I followed the installation steps correctly:

    Would you like to start it right now [Y/n]? Y
    [OK] Your trial license key will expire in 14 days!
    [OK] litespeed: pid=3901.
    LiteSpeed Web Server started successfully! Have fun!
    The tutorial states the following:

    "Install LiteSpeed Web Server as root user. During installation, make sure to set User/Group to nobody:nobody, do NOT import Apache configuration, do NOT set 2080 or 80 as the HTTP service port, those ports will be used when httpd.conf is loaded."

    It never asked for the User/Group during the installation.
    During the installation is also stated the following:

    The administration interface is located at ocalhost:<ADMIN_PORT>/
    or <ip_or_Hostname_of_this_machine>:<ADMIN_PORT>/

    Now the admin configuration file states the following:


    but when trying to access http(s)://serverip:7080 it just times out...

    Very confusing. Looking forward to any replies.

    Thank you

    most likely a firewall issue.

    to verify this, ssh to the server, wget, see if time out.

    service iptables stop

    Then try again, you could also nmap the server from another server to see if the port is indeed listening.
