It sounds like LiteSpeed Servers were pretty popular 7 months ago, are they still doing well now?

I'm thinking about switching to them but just want to make sure nothing has changed since then...

Thanks for the help :):)

If you have budget and you need apache compatible .htaccess, go with litespeed.
Otherwise, consider lighttpd or nginx (I prefer nginx over anything)

I use to use Lightspeed but have stopped using it because of the price. I couldn't afford it, so I switched to Apache + nginx. Nginx handles the images, CSS and JavaScript while Apache processes the PHP requests.

LiteSpeed is so great.
I've use it before 2-3 months ago.
Now on my New Server I'm gonna take it.

Thanks.

Consider adding mod_ruid2 for the PHP requests. It's much faster than the default Apache PHP.

I use litespeed in my server for 2 years,maybe 3,is not faster than nginx,
i can say that in a server with all the kinds of sites, tubes/forums/joomla cmd/static pages litespeed was using 2 times more CPU power/i had double load, BUT when i tried to migrate to nginx i had really a lot of problems and i lost 2 weeks and money paying people to fix all problems, problems with out end and at the end i returned back to the litespeed.
Their support (litespeed) is one of the worst i ever seen and the rates are the same with 2-3 years ago when the max cores of a server were 8.
This is my experiense with litespeed and nginx.

Ps: Sorry for my english

I just switched from Apache to Litespeed, and right now I'm in the process of installing some things for cPanel / WHM. I will be sure to let everyone know how it all goes like in a week or so to give me time to test drive it.

We use LiteSpeed along with Varnish and it's great. Couldn't ask for a better web server :agree:

LiteSpeed works to a point. If you run a 16thread server like we do, you won't even begin to utilize all that power unless you buy a higher end lic. which in shared hosting you can't typically cover the expenses.

nginx/php-fpm really does a good job for a free configuration.

On 16 thread server you need max 2 licenses to serve static material, all rest of threads are for php/sql. So it's not true that you need higher end license.

I'm using it over 3 years and I'm very happy with it.

Using it for couple of years now, apart from a few issues with running xCachce/APC along with it and having instead having to stick with EAccelerator + Memcache, there is nothing bad I can think of.
