PHP Applications with LiteSpeed Web Server

PaaS for PHP apps

The LiteSpeed Web Server is a highly scalable PHP web server with high performance and low memory consumption. It is built based on the best practices of the PHP hosting, utilizing the benefits of both Apache and NGINX implementations, and integrating its own optimizations.

The feature-rich structure of the LiteSpeed application server includes the following specifics:

  • an event-driven architecture (like NGINX) consumes fewer resources than Apache process-based model, ensuring better performance with minimum memory and CPU usage
  • full compatibility with commonly used Apache features including mod_rewrite, .htaccess, and mod_security
  • individual optimization for the most popular hosting platforms (e.g. WordPress, Magento, Drupal, Joomla, etc.)
  • ESI cache, CSS and JavaScript optimization, image optimization, browser and object cache support, CDN support, built-in WAF, Geo-DNS, CAPTCHA, IP throttling, cutting-edge anti-DDoS features, etc.

DevOpsCloud PaaS supports LiteSpeed solution out-of-box to provide a secure, efficient, and scalable server for the PHP hosting in the cloud. According to our benchmark tests, the LiteSpeed performance capacity varies from just a few times up to ten times higher than the main competitors such as Apache and NGINX web servers. Below you’ll see the results of testing, as well as how to install, configure and track performance of LiteSpeed WS within DevOpsCloud PaaS.
