    hi guys

    i have a client i'm trying to help setup with litespeed.
    his site gets over 500k+ monthly uniques.
    he is currently on 2 apache servers, which usually have load from 5 to 12+, and often producing 408 errors.

    i'm pretty certain his site will function fine just on a single server w/ litespeed but what's the proper configurations for such case?

    his site also uses perl/cgi, and i am wondering if there will be any special configurations i need to do to support that. does litespeed support perl/cgi out of the box?

    currently i have a 2x hexcore intel romley cpu w/ 256gb memory, intel 520 ssd, so hardware wise i think i'm pretty good shape.

    normally i never configure litespeed settings and i just use what's given by default. but i'd like to know if there are things i need to customize, pleaes let me know.

    default setting usually fine

    when lsws running, watch the Real-Time Stats and adjust those default settings accordingly.

    hi nitewave thanks.
    so now i am testing out his script site which is in perl/cgi and i'm now getting:

    premature end of response error

    any idea?
    he did also mention that he had a test server w/ litespeed and it was working fine at the time. i wonder what i'm doing wrong?

    so i've identified it the problem stems from line:

    use Session;

    is there some known problem w/ this line?

    for instance this errors out:

    use Session;
    print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
    print "hi";

    but this doesn't:

    print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
    print "hi";
