How to use LiteSpeed Web Server

LiteSpeed Web Server (LSWS) is compatible with commonly-used Apache features, including mod_rewrite, .htaccess, and mod_security. LSWS can load Apache configuration files directly and works as a drop-in replacement for Apache while fully integrating with popular control panels. LSWS replaces all Apache functions but uses an event-driven approach to handle requests.

In BGOcloud we have LiteSpeed Web Server and the LiteSpeed plugin for WHM so every client can easily enable it. In the beginning, you need to install the LiteSpeed plugin. Here the list of platforms that have LiteSpeed plugin and of course WordPress, Magento and Joomla have it.
