Web Cache Web Server Configuration - Apache Config (No Control Panel)

Set Server level cache root

Set a server level cache root by adding the following lines to your server level Apache config file:

<IfModule Litespeed>
CacheRoot /home/lscache/

Set virtual host level cache root

The vhost level cache root is normally a per user cache root set to a subdirectory under a user's home directory.

If using a virtual host include file (as opposed to .htaccess) a relative path can be used for “CacheRoot” such as

<IfModule LiteSpeed>
  CacheRoot lscache

If it does not exist, the cache directory will be created automatically by LiteSpeed Web Server during startup as lscache under the user's home directory.

Notes: If different vhosts share the same document root, these vhosts have to share the same vhost level cache root directory.

The default LiteSpeed Cache settings work well with most caching scenarios. If you're configuring a shared hosting environment, don't change any of the Server Level default cache policy settings. Leave them as Not Set.

Cache Policy:
Enable Public Cache:Not Set
Check Public Cache:Not Set
Max Object Size:Not Set
Cache Expire Time (seconds):Not Set
Cache Stale Age (seconds)Not Set
Cache Request with Query String:Not Set
Cache Request with Cookie:Not Set
Cache Response with Cookie:Not Set
Ignore Request Cache-Control:Not Set
Ignore Response Cache-Control:Not Set
Enable Private Cache:Not Set
Check Private Cache:Not Set
Private Cache Expire Time (seconds):Not Set

Add the following Apache style configuration directive to .htaccess file of a specific WordPress installation to enable cache lookup.

<IfModule LiteSpeed>
   CacheLookup public on


  • “Enable Public Cache” should always be “Not Set” or “No” unless you want to enable cache globally, which is definitely not recommended.
  • Check Public Cache better set to “Not Set” but should never be “No” otherwise it will turn off the cache lookup and LScache won't work.

Please perform a graceful restart of LiteSpeed Web Server after any configuration change to the server.
