 These settings will need to be adjusted on a per case basis as each scenario will be different. They should be increased slightly higher than the current values until the issue stops occurring. For the changes to take effect, both csf and lfd will need to be restarted. This can either be done via the WHM Plugin or through a shell terminal with the following command: ''​csf -r; service lfd restart''​ These settings will need to be adjusted on a per case basis as each scenario will be different.

 +==== Misconfiguration of "​lsphp"​ External Application ====
 +During LiteSpeed Web Server installation,​ external applications will be automatically set to the best value for general use. However, sometimes the user intentionally removes some of these settings. This causes a misconfiguration and possibly also a 503 error.
 +
 +For a PHP external app, LSWS will normally add the following to it by default:
 +    <​memSoftLimit>​2047M</​memSoftLimit>​
 +    <​memHardLimit>​2047M</​memHardLimit>​
 +    <​procSoftLimit>​1400</​procSoftLimit>​
 +    <​procHardLimit>​1500</​procHardLimit>​
 +
 +Imagine a user intentionally removes the above without any clear purpose. When the resource limit is not set, LSWS will use the CGI resource limit by default, but the CGI resource limit is too low to meet the requirements. ​
 +
 +If the user has configured PHP to have 500 max connections:​
 +     <​maxConns>​500</​maxConns>​
 +
 +Then it must have 500 child processes: ​
 +     <​env>​PHP_LSAPI_CHILDREN=500</​env>​
 +
 +The "500 max connections"​ setting requires "​process limit" to be set at a minimum of "​1000."​ But since the user incorrectly removed the PHP process limit settings, the above misconfiguration caused a 503 PHP error when running LSWS. 
 +
 +We recommend that you do not to remove anything if you are unsure, as it can cause an uncertain problem, including a 503 error. ​

 If you use a control panel such as cPanel or Plesk, make sure both PHPs for Apache and LiteSpeed are matching each other. To test this, you can create a phpinfo page under your domain and switch between both web servers to check. If these PHPs do not match you could end up with 503 errors. If you use a control panel such as cPanel or Plesk, make sure both PHPs for Apache and LiteSpeed are matching each other.
