Hi Litespeed folks! This is kind of a "pre-sales" question, but I couldn't find any forum for that, so this forum seemed the most appropriate. I migrated to lighttpd from apache a couple of years ago for performance reasons. Lighttpd was kind of flakey until version 1.4.13, which it seemed very stable. This was on my FreeBSD 6.x system. I am now the proud owner of several Sun Fire servers (2- and 4-core AMD64 Opterons) running solaris 10. Three of the servers are dedicated to the web server / php activities like so: server A: lighttpd only server B and C: PHP 5.2.1 / fastcgi only (port 8002) The idea was that 1 web server could be supported by numerous PHP servers. Server A could have php installed as well, but I didn't want to risk PHP activities impacting web server performance (with 2 core / 2GB ram this probably would not have happened though) My brief perusal through litespeed documentation indicates that PHP LSAPI (and I assume PHP-fastcgi) is located on the same server as litespeed. Does it have to be? My question is: can litespeed be set up in the same fashion as I currently have lighttpd (1 web server, multiple PHP slave nodes)? For curiosity's sake: My current setup of lighttpd 1.4.13 on solaris is also flaky. My PHP fastcgi processes (externally spawned) are frequently and randomly "dying" according to lighttpd logs, although they seem fine. This ends up with a 500 server error. Lighttpd is not crashing though. I compiled both lighttpd and php from source using sun's c compiler. I can't figure out why the setup is unstable, and lighttpd is, for all intents and purposes, unsupported. Jan disappears for weeks at a time, most cries for help on the forums go unanswered.
