cPanel Plugin - LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager

The LiteSpeed Web Cache Manager plugin for cPanel is a companion plugin to the LiteSpeed plugin for WHM. If a hosting provider is using both LiteSpeed Web Server and the LiteSpeed plugin for WHM, they are able to install this plugin for their cPanel end-users.

Main Page

This is the first page shown when visiting the plugin page. Here you will be presented with 3 sections and a link to the settings page.

  • Why Use LSCache? - Contains some information on LSCache and the various available LSCache plugins through the Available LSCache Plugins link.
  • Flush LSCache - This section contains a button for flushing the contents of your LSCache folder. This will clear the cache for all owned sites with LSCache enabled.
  • LiteSpeed Cache Management - This section contains a link to the LiteSpeed Cache Management page for owned WordPress sites where LSCWP can be selectively enabled and disabled on a per site basis.
  • Settings - This link will take you to the plugin settings page.

The LiteSpeed Cache Management and Settings pages will be covered in more detail below.

LiteSpeed Cache Management - WordPress Cache

The manage view is where most of the magic happens. Here you can manage LSCWP for your WordPress installations individually or in groups.

Starting from the actual table we have the following fields:

  • Discovered WordPress Installations: This field contains the path of each WordPress installation discovered during the last scan operation.
  • Cache Status: Displays the last known status of LSCWP for the listed WordPress installation.
  • Flag: This field can either be blank or display a flag icon. While an installation is flagged (in other words, displaying the flag icon), it will be excluded from all future Mass Enable/Disable LSCWP operations in the WHM plugin.
  • Actions: This field contains action buttons that perform a specific action only for the related WordPress installation. These actions include Enable/Disable LSCWP and Flag/Unflag this installation.

Looking at the top row of buttons, we have Scan/Re-scan, Refresh Status, and to the right, Flush All.

  • Scan/Re-scan: Discovers all WordPress installations under each cPanel user's known document root. These discovered installations will then be saved to a data file and displayed on the manager screen. If this data file is removed or corrupted, simply scan again to repopulate the list.
  • Refresh Status: Each listed WordPress installation will have an LSCWP Status reflecting the status of LSCWP for that installation. The Refresh Status button will update this value to the most current status for all listed WordPress installations.
  • Flush All: Like the button of the same name on the main page, this button will flush the contents of your LSCache folder. This will clear the cache for all owned sites with LSCache enabled.

Moving on we have the the bottom row of buttons which are used to perform group operations. These buttons work in tandem with the check-boxes found next to each discovered installation to allow you to perform some basic operations for only the selected group.

  • Enable Selected & Disable Selected: These buttons allow you to enable and disable LSCWP for the selected WordPress installations.
  • Flag Selected & Unflag Selected: These buttons allow you to set or unset the flag field for the selected WordPress Installations. Flagged installations will be excluded from Mass Enable/Disable LSCWP operations in the WHM plugin.

Settings

The Settings page allows you to control various plugin related settings (one at the moment).

  • Log File Level: This setting controls the highest level of log messages that will be written to the log file located at /home/$user/lscmData/ls_webcachemgr.log. The default value is INFO.
