How to Use More Cores With a 2-CPU or Above License on cPanel

You can boost your website's benchmark performance by selecting a higher-CPU license. If you have a 2-CPU or above license on cPanel, you can check how many LiteSpeed processes are running in “top”. Sometimes you may only see one core being used by LiteSpeed processes. Why?

Websites configured via Apache configuration, such as in a cPanel environment, are served by one CPU by default. You can add a listener for a site's <IP : Port> in LiteSpeed's native configuration. Bind it to two processes to fully utilize the 2-CPU license (or more) in your benchmark test.

The following shows how to enable two processes for your website for port 80. Select the IP that is used by your benchmark-testing domain associated with the virtual host.

If you have multi IPs, you can use “ANY” in “IP Address” field. Please keep in mind that if you need to switch between <Individual IP> and ANY, you will need to have a full LSWS stop and start.

It is normal that manually created listener(s) will not show in running in such control panel environment.
