    Hey this is kinda urgent, as our site is an active busy site.

    I installed Litespeed last month on our dedicated server, just the free trial. I installed it on another port (not port 80) just to test.

    Now suddenly today, apache shut down and won't start, so my site is totally down. I called the server host tech support and they checked the server and they said that Litespeed is stopping apache from starting, and that I have to either remove litespeed or get a license. The thing is I'm not using Litespeed, Litespeed is not set for port 80, so why would it be stopping apache.

    Please help, this is urgent.

    need to fix this...

    If I purchase a license online will I get the license # instantly? Not that I should have to... I'm just trying to get my Apache to start again.

    I'd rather not remove Litespeed yet but whatever I need to do.

    I tried buying a license even though my site is not running on litespeed... that didn't go through for some reason.

    So now I've uninstalled Litespeed.

    Now I'm trying to manually restart apache via the command like this:

    /etc/init.d/httpd start

    Here is the result:

    Starting httpd: /usr/sbin/httpd: line 28: /usr/local/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: No such

    Can someone please help.

    Thanks.. I finally figured that out on my own just before you posted, and got it working.

    Man that was a nightmare.
