One of the best and fastest WordPress instances...Much better than bitnami...Actually improves your page speed and server scores...
Also allows for multiple sites to run simultaneously

Excellent webserver with lightning speed

What do you like best?
It is designed to be fast. If you have your own VPS, you can easily deploy it with CyberPanel. WordPress and this webserver provide excellent performance together. OpenLitespeed is free as well. It also comes with its own Web access panel where you can configure almost anything related to OpenLiteSpeed. In addition, there is a live monitoring dashboard as well.
What do you dislike?
I have been using it for a few months now and I have not seen any major problems with the OpenLiteSpeed server. Though, it requires technical knowledge on creating servers and VPS. I have also faced some issues to properly deploy it with servers that have more than 2 IP addresses assigned to it.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
First, I have solved the bottleneck of server response time. Improved WordPress performance up to 97% from 61% (GTMetrix). This resulted in more page views, SEO ranking slowly but surely going up. And generally, once I have done the configuration in a stable state, I do not have to touch it from time to time. It saves time. And the visual web interface to manage it may look overwhelming but I am happy because I do not need to write the server configuration from the shell and just re-configure them when I need it just by entering the Web panel.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Those who are currently using Apache 2, Nginx servers, OpenLiteSpeed will increase your server performance by at least 30%. Combine it together with your CMS and Memcache / Redis - and get your page speed score up. I found it much easier to manage than the above mentioned two


So many issues

Firstly from a fresh install and adding only woocommerce the server crashes 80% of the time when visiting woocommerce settings page bringing the website down for a few minutes. Also crashes 100% of the time when logging into WordPress from 2 devices.

Can't get cache to clear. The WordPress plugin tells me it has cleared cache but I still get hits that return an old page, this is most notable on the home page when no longer combining css and the page still asks for the combined file which no longer exists. Disabling cache through the plugin also did not work. The only thing that worked was turning off the cache module in the Openlitespeed web admin. I tried disabling and re-enabling but it starts requesting the old file again.
Can't work out how to manually clear the cache.

Hey guys, in terms of speed this Image is amazing. Even after a few days without really doing much SEO work, you can see your site showing up on google with the keywords related to your specific domain. The only thing I don't like is the litespeed support, I have written a lot of emails to and they never reply. I had problems with one of my instances, and need support, so, you guys at Open Litespeed, get the support up and running.

Easy installation from the beginning, was able to launch new a Wordpress EC2 instance in just a few steps, and got a super fast Wordpress site. Great solution and documentation.
