    Do I need to do something special to get litespeed running on Ubuntu Server? When I attempt to start using "sudo ./lswsctrl start" I get the following error.

    ./lswsctrl: 70: ./lswsctrl: ./litespeed: not found
    [ERROR] Failed to start litespeed!

    Everything compiled fine and I'm not using a panel. Just a basic install of Ubuntu server and lsws. Thanks!

    Same deal - below is the output.

    sudo /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl start

    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: 70: /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: ./litespeed: not found
    [ERROR] Failed to start litespeed!

    litespeed: no process found
    /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: 70: /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: ./litespeed: not found

    pls manually run 'sudo /usr/local/lsws/bin/litespeed'

    executing "sudo /usr/local/lsws/bin/litespeed" doesn't reply with anything. I checked to see if it might have started a process, but nothing. It's very strange. I've never had any issues with litespeed installs under RHEL or CENTOS.

    Run ./lshttpd -V and also check error log.

    I know this topic is pretty old, but still it's a common issue.

    For everyone who runs into this issue, try installing the 32bit compatiblity layer if you are running Ubuntu 64bit.

    For example:
    sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
    The free version of litespeed doesn't provide 64 bit executables and therefor your server needs the above libs to run the litespeed executable.
