Yes, their list prices do seem a tad high. We've had some discussion with them and there are, of course, discounts given for volume etc.
I have read that you could drop it into a cpanel server.
When I was thinking of using it for cpanelreseller.com, I thought I read about putting it into a cpanel server on their site, but I just glanced over their site and didn't see it anywhere.
Does anyone a have experiance with litespeed on a cpanel server?
Thank you for the nice review.
Have you played with LiteSpeed internal Anti-DDoS features? It should be able to reduce the damage of DDoS attack even better, even fend it off completely.
Thanks everyone who shared your experiences with LiteSpeed. :)
I am using free version on one server, I know litespeed does not support SSI that Apache obviously supports. however, you may relay the SSI to backend Apache at a different port.
yeah i moved it onto one with over 500 accounts, besides server side includes and some mod rewrite rules dont work. I even think its the one that cpanel adds to htaccess that doesnt work either, but you can change them up and they work fine.
Redirectmatch 301 ^/forum http://site.com/smf
is the way I had to do them.
Now you can try it out without messing up anything, just read their wiki.
I seen someone said about the price, yea that is a lil high but it would average out to hardware upgrade. Meaning you can run a lot of busy sites on litespeed without upgrading processors and ram.
I already see some cracks for litespeed 3 :eek:
I rather upgrade the memory at $25/month, it'll take me more than 32 months before I can start saving. And by that time, prices for servers would've gone down by a lot.
Take a look at competing web servers (and again these are not Apache compatible), i.e. www.zeus.com. You won't like their pricing :)
Indeed they don't have the compatibility and ease of use (lighty/nginx) but with some tweaking and configurations they can work well enough.
Of course, I've never used LiteSpeed (installer failed to install PHP, gave up on trial).
I don't think it's expensive at all. An enterprise customer which is what they're targeting wouldn't sweat dropping a couple grand on it.
