Web Host Essential and LSCache

    I was using a LiteSpeed license and had LSCache as an addon, but I started using a new LiteSpeed license reseller and they started offering the new LiteSpeed licenses, so I purchased a Web Host Essential license and changed the license in WHM to the new Web Host Essential license, but now LSCache doesn't seem to be working.

    It was my understanding that the new licenses include LSCache or am I mistaken?

    From the LiteSpeed store, it says:

    "Included with every plan"
    "LSCache (LiteSpeed Cache) full-page caching module is included in all licenses".

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Please make sure upgrade to 5.3.1 .
    Yes, LSCache is included, maybe it is a problem with your cache setup?

    I'm using 5.3.1
    In the attached image, this is what I see in LiteSpeed.
    Any suggestions to try?

    Hello @snewtonge,

    Can you click on the license status page and post what is reported? The WHM plugin my need to be tweaked if you are running into trouble on one of our new license types.

    Just to note, initially all I did was use "Change License" and entered the new license and since then LSCache has stopped working.

    I've since tried uninstalling and reinstalling LSWS, but still the same.

    Thanks for the information,

    If you don't mind, please private message me with your new serial number so that we can confirm that the issue is not somehow coming from our licensing server.

    Hello again @snewtonge,

    I've confirmed this as a license type translation bug in the WHM plugin due to an edge case that was not handled properly. This caused the new license type to be displayed when it should not have been. Checking the licensing server, you are actually currently using one of our old license types (1-CPU) which does not include LSCache by default.

    The good news is that this can be easily fixed by either upgrading your current license to include LSCache or upgrading your license to one of our new license types which include LSCache by default (The "Web Host Essential" license would be the closest match to our old 1-CPU license).

    I appologize for any confusion that this may have caused. We should have this fixed in our next WHM plugin release (tbd).

    Ok, I'm confused then, because according to the reseller ([Link Removed]), the license is supposed to be the following:

    LiteSpeed Licenses - LSWS Web Host Essential

    So the license is not actually the above?

    Correct, I have sent you a private message regarding this as well.
