    Hi,

    I have a question, need us suggest for me. I have many website of client with more 500 (maybe up to 800) connection same time/website. Now, what should choose webserver for my VPS?

    6 Core CPU x 2.00GHz ( E5-2620 ), 8 GB RAM, 250GB HDD RAID-6

    1. LiteSpeed
    2. Unixy Varnish (+ Nginx) Plugin
    3. ApacheBooster
    4. cPnginx (Fee)
    5. nginxcP (Free)
    6. cpXstack

    Regards,

    Hello :)

    I moved this thread to the "Optimization" forum. It's important to keep in mind that using a third-party web server is fine, but you do lose support in the event you need us to troubleshoot an issue related to it.

    Thank you.

    Litespeed protects you from Layer 7 DDoS and is also sort of supported (not officially supported but still..) by cPanel since its more or less Apache-based syntax.

    What I suggest you is to get Litespeed (MPM worker) + xCache and for PHP handler, use FCGI.
    Do get mod_security to prevent getting attacked through Slowloris. (I think Slowloris is prevented by litespeed already)
    This is resource effective for larger sites but resource consuming for small sites.

    Read HOW-TOs on how to configure Litespeed.

    Yes, litespeed always stands for the best in the race of webservers, as it is really lighter and faster than Apache and Nginx.

    That is not correct. We do not support Litespeed, or any other Web server other than Apache httpd. If you submit a ticket to us about a problem with a Web site, and you are using an alternative Web server, we will ask you to switch back to Apache httpd before we troubleshoot it. Apache httpd is the only Web server for which we provide any support.

    What I meant was forums support by the community.
    Most of the time, the community will only provide links to related Litespeed docs and tell them to contact Litespeed instead.
    Let me correct that, not even supported.

    Sorry for the confusion caused.

    How make apache withstand 2000 concurrent connections? With many ip addresses (including opera mini browser). Some VPS/Server using cPnginx.com for reduce load it (like CPU, RAM).
