Faster, more secure PHP
With our dedicated PHP LiteSpeed SAPI module, LiteSpeed Web Server is able to deliver a level of performance superior to that of mod_php as well as FastCGI. LiteSpeed supports PHP suEXEC without compromises of phpsuexec or suphp implementations. Every PHP process is run as the user who owns the account, dividing resource usage for easy identification, as well as greater separation from the web server (lshttpd) processes. In addition, LiteSpeed PHP allows PHP configuration in .htaccess, which is not available with phpsuexec or suphp implementations.
Compression is seamlessly configured in the tuning section of the LiteSpeed Console. Compression can be enabled on your specified types of data at any level you desire. With LiteSpeed, a balance can easily be achieved between CPU usage and the bandwidth usage benefits of gzip compression. LiteSpeed also offers the ability to create files which are pre-gzipped files, ready to be served to the user at any moment. These files are automatically updated with the change of the original file’s contents. Not only will LiteSpeed help you reduce your hardware costs, but it will also help you reduce bandwidth costs!

LiteSpeed Web Server can operate with an Apache configuration file. Most commonly used Apache features have been implemented. Some Apache-compatible features including .htaccess, mod_rewrite, mod_security, and mod_frontpage are available exclusively on LiteSpeed Web Server and cannot be found in other light-weight web server software.
With LiteSpeed Web Server, commonly used directives in a .htaccess file work exactly the same. According to many benchmarks, .htaccess files add a significant delay to serving pages in Apache. To eliminate this delay, LiteSpeed employs an intelligent caching system to automatically update configuration when changes to a user’s .htaccess file are detected.
LiteSpeed Web Server’s rewrite engine is fully compatible with Apache mod_rewrite so there is no need to change rewrite directives when you switch to LiteSpeed. The rewrite engine is highly optimized and increases speed over Apache’s rewrite engine, especially for rewrite directives in a .htaccess file.
mod_security 1.9 compatible request filter
LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise Edition allows the use of mod_security configuration within your httpd.conf. Unlike the Apache and mod_security combination, LiteSpeed Web Server is built to implement rule sets in a more efficient manner and allows specialized grouping of related rules for an even greater increase in performance.
MS FrontPage Server Extension is supported by LiteSpeed, allowing users to mount the directory containing web pages as a Windows shared folder. This feature is exclusive to LiteSpeed Web Server, Apache and Zeus.
