Domain Limit Has Been Reached

You install a new LiteSpeed Web Server on cPanel with a Site Owner license, but it cannot be started.

LSWS is running the latest version and latest build, so what is causing the error?

You run a license check, and it seems ok:

[root@cpanel home]# /usr/local/lsws/bin/lshttpd -V
[OK] Leased license key 1 will expire in 37 days!
2019-01-25 20:35:59.894706 [NOTICE] Memory size is: 32653128KB.

When switching to LSWS from Apache, it doesn't show the error message, but it seems the LiteSpeed processes are not being started.

/usr/local/lsws/admin/misc/cp_switch_ws.sh lsws

You check the error log:

vi /etc/apache2/logs/error_log

2019-01-25 20:36:38.214060 [NOTICE] #11 [domain11.com]

The error log clearly shows Domain limit has been reached, domain limit: 5, total domains: 11. A Site Owner License has a domain limit of 5 and cannot be used on a server with more than that. If you require more top-level domains than 5, you should upgrade your license.
