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