I've tried about ten times now to follow the directions in http://www.railtie.net/articles/2006/01/21/up-and-running-in-the-speed-of-light, modified to fit the directions at http://weblog.techno-weenie.net/2006/4/11/setting-up-litespeed-with-mongrel. Every time I finish following the directions, the web server dies upon applying the changes and clicking graceful-restart, and can't be brought back up until I reinstall it and go through everything again, at which point it dies once again. I've even tried it with FCGI, just as described in Bob Silva's tutorial. I have mongrel running fine, as I can access my rails app via one of the ports that mongrel is running on. If I try to start the server after the inital failure at the command line via Code: /opt/lsws/bin/lswsctrl start I get this error: Code: Can't determine the Home of LiteSpeed Web Server, exit! [ERROR] Failed to start lshttpd! If I try to start it as sudo, it will tell me it has started, but the process is subsequently nowhere to be found, and if I run the stop script, it tells me it's not running. The error.log is not very helpful to my eyes: Code: 2006-05-15 17:35:33.194 [NOTICE] Loading LiteSpeed/2.1.15 Standard ... 2006-05-15 17:35:33.298 [NOTICE] [ADMIN] server socket: 127.0.0.1:7923 2006-05-15 17:35:33.298 [NOTICE] Loading configuration from /opt/lsws/conf/httpd _config.xml ... 2006-05-15 17:35:33.299 [INFO] old priority: 0, new priority: 0 2006-05-15 17:35:33.299 [INFO] [config:server:basic] For better obscurity, serve r version number is hidden in the response header. 2006-05-15 17:35:33.302 [NOTICE] The maximum number of file descriptor limit is set to 1024. 2006-05-15 17:35:33.305 [NOTICE] [child: 1305] Successfully change current user to www-data 2006-05-15 17:35:33.305 [NOTICE] [Child: 1305] Core dump is enabled. 2006-05-15 17:35:33.305 [NOTICE] [Child: 1305] Setup swapping space... 2006-05-15 17:35:33.306 [NOTICE] [AutoRestarter] new child process with pid=1305 is forked! 2006-05-15 17:35:33.333 [NOTICE] [Child: 1305] LiteSpeed/2.1.15 Standard starts successfully! 2006-05-15 17:35:34.002 [NOTICE] [AutoUpdate] Checking for new releases... 2006-05-15 17:35:38.343 [INFO] [AutoUpdate] No new update. 2006-05-15 17:37:09.548 [NOTICE] Server restart request from admin interface! 2006-05-15 17:37:09.553 [NOTICE] [Child: 1305] Start shutting down gracefully .. . 2006-05-15 17:37:09.553 [INFO] Stop listener *:8088.
