    LiteSpeed vs Apache

    My host has replaced Apache with LiteSpeed.

    This is what their site says:

    LiteSpeed Web Server is the leading high-performance, high-scalability web server. LiteSpeed Web Server has superior performance in terms of both raw speed and scalability. Our benchmarks demonstrate that it is more than 6 times faster than Apache. When serving static content, LiteSpeed surpasses well-respected content accelerators including thttpd, boa and TUX. When it comes to dynamic content, LiteSpeed is more than 50% faster in PHP content delivery than Apache with mod_php.
    Is it true?

    Yes, it's faster, yet you might experience some compatibility issues, I recommend that you test your scripts properly.

    I Haven't tried LiteSpeed, but I have heard is faster but as shenron said you might experience some compatibility issues, remember apache gets the biggest piece of the share cake and most scripts are tested on apache servers, but you should give it a try or check this one: lighttpd fly light

    what version of vBulletin are you running and PHP version?

    I've ran litespeed and vBulletin together numerous times and it's never had a problem. Alternatively URLJet which specializes in vBulletin hosting also uses Lighttp

    I run Apache on my server and haven't used Lightspeed but I read about it to keep up with things. It seems that even though Lightspeed is much faster it doesn't have as many modules and features as Apache, if I have my info correct. It's a trade-off.

    Litespeed is not really that much faster, it's more of a tossup as to how you configure it. All in all, if you tweak Apache to the point where it does what you want, you will notice almost no difference.

    That's what I did for my server. Apache is so highly configurable and has so many modules it's just a matter of taking the time to set it how you want it.
