LiteSpeed Web Server can be defined as the drop-in replacement for Apache servers. It reads Apache configuration files directly and has compatibility with the Apache .htaccess and mod_security rules. This LiteSpeed Web Server license can be purchased from the cPanel Store within WHM’s EasyApache 4 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4).

Purchase License

There is a specific way to purchase the LiteSpeed Web Server license.

Step 1: Initiate the License Purchase Process

  • We need to log in as a root user in WHM or as a reseller account with privileges of root level.
  • Then navigate to WHM’s EasyApache 4 interface (WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache  4) making the LiteSpeed Web Server banner appear at the top of the interface.
  • The interface will then display a license offer for the server’s hardware, like,
  • LiteSpeed Web Server – VPS License — For VPS (Virtual Private Server) servers containing less than 8GB of RAM.
  • LiteSpeed Web Server – Dedicated License — For dedicated servers and VPS servers containing more than 8GB of RAM.
  • Lastly, user can click the license offer which will make a new interface  appear.

Step 2: Log in to the cPanel Store

The System requests for access to this account. This happens if one has logged into their cPanel store account already. We need to verify whether the interface shows or displays the cPanel Store username and server name correctly. If so, then click Allow Access. A new interface will appear after that.

Step 3: Verify and Complete your Purchase

While purchasing this monthly License (as per current situation) through WHM interface, user must select between a VPS or Dedicated license type. There is an automatic selection by the system. It selects the appropriate License type for the server and helps in detecting the IPv4 address to License. After verifying the license order and accepting the legal agreements, user has to enter or select the desired payment information, and click on Pay Now.

A confirmation message will appear after the processing of the order. Also, an invoice email will be received from the cPanel Store.

Similarly, an error message will appear if there is any problem with the order, and emails from cPanel Customer Service for helping to resolve the issue.

Step 4: Installation

The server will automatically download and install LiteSpeed Web Server and the installation interface will appear showing the progress of the installation.

Also, it will display an administrator username and password which a user must record. The LiteSpeed Web Console in the LiteSpeed Plugin interface will ask for the username and password to log in.

User has to click on Continue to LiteSpeed Plugin for accessing the LiteSpeed Plugin  interface in WHM (WHM >> Home >> Plugins >> LiteSpeed Plugin), once the installation is done.

If the license is successfully purchased, the LiteSpeed Web Server banner will no longer appear in WHM’s EasyApache 4 interface ( WHM >> Home >> Software >> EasyApache 4).

Conclusion

Steps to purchase the LiteSpeed Web Server license is outlined in this review.
