How To Install LSWS Standard Edition

LSWS Standard Edition is a free version of LSWS with reduced features. To install it, you can follow the same installation guide as LSWS Enterprise Edition.

During the installation however, you might encounter the following error:

Would you like to start it right now [Y/n]?

/opt/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: 76: /opt/lsws/bin/lswsctrl: ./litespeed: not found
[ERROR] Failed to start litespeed!
litespeed: no process found

Why was “./litespeed” not found?

LSWS Standard Edition only includes 32-bit binary files. To run Standard Edition on a 64-bit Linux build, you will need to install 32-bit compatible libraries. (ia32-libs for Ubuntu/Debian and glibc for CentOS)

On a Debian System:

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update

For Debian 7 : ia32-libs
For Debian 8 : lib32z1 lib32ncurses5

Solves the problem.

In order to avoid these types of issues, please make sure to always review the file notes on our download page. For example, to run LSWS version 5.0 on a FreeBSD version higher than 8.x (x86) you will need to install /usr/ports/misc/compat8x.
