    My ardor for Lightspeed was somewhat cooled when I discovered that I would have to recode all of my mod_rewrite statements to use it. That was some time ago; it may no longer be true.

    The idea of a lightweight web server still has a lot of appeal to me in the context of building a dedicated server to host web proxies.

    Litespeed is now supposedly 100% compatible with apache mod_rewrite directives.

    I really like litespeed. I've never used for any of my own things, but have played with it on a friends server, and it is exactly as it's name implies; lite and speedy

    Another thing I really like about is how easy it's now to switch from apache to litespeed. You can have litespeed use your apache httpd.conf so all settings and configurations can be easily brought over.

    And the supposed zero downtime 'restart' for configuration changes seems very interesting.

    Yes I've used it for 4 months, the only downside is that litespeed does not have flength (if that's what its called) for the loading bar on scripts such as YouTube style clones, and has a hard time with those. However, I was on 3. something Enterprise Edition (Quad Core version) and they were supposed to release 4.0 at the time that was supposed to have something to fill in the void.

    Overall, it was a lot more stable than Apache, then again you couldnt' break it easily like you could Apache :P The big thing I liked was its ease of use and if I could afford it, i would go back.

    Yes the zero downtime is true, it runs as a process and just termiantes itself and restarts itself. If it can't restart it'll throw apache up.

    I saw that geekstorage hosting use this. When I asked would my mod rewrite and htaccess work with this, they said that they will without any problems.

    However I decided then to use other hosting...
