For every visit to your Apache web server, a line is generated inside of the log file. As you can imagine, the log files can fill up very quickly with visitor information and errors that are encountered, so they become unwieldy and tough to sift through. Analyzing the logs is an important part of administering Apache and ensuring that it runs as expected.

OpenLiteSpeed vs Nginx
One of the first – and most crucial – decisions that a website owner will need to make is what type of web server to use. The decision to host your website on a Linux system is a no brainer, but when it comes to web servers, there are a few choices and they all come with their own pros and cons. Among the most popular on Linux is NGINX and OpenLiteSpeed, both well known for their speed and ability to host concurrent connections.
OpenLiteSpeed as reverse proxy
In this tutorial, you will learn how to configure OpenLiteSpeed as a reverse proxy server. A system that sits between a client and a web server (or servers) can be configured as a reverse proxy. The proxy service acts as a frontend and works by handling all incoming client requests and distributing them to the backend web, database, and/or other server(s). The advantages of a reverse proxy become most apparent under high traffic conditions or situations where multiple backend servers are deployed and need some form of load balancing.
OpenLiteSpeed htaccess setup
One of the most alluring features of OpenLiteSpeed is that it is highly compatible with Apache, so web admins migrating from Apache web server to OpenLiteSpeed will not have to spend much time converting their configuration. When using the Apache web server,
.htaccess files (also called “distributed configuration files”) are used to specify configuration on a per-directory basis, or more generally to modify the behavior of the Apache web server without having to access virtual hosts files directly (this is usually impossible for example, on shared hosts).
OpenLiteSpeed change port
The default listening port for OpenLiteSpeed web server is 8088. Many Linux administrators may be more accustomed to using the typical HTTP listening port 80, and HTTPS port 443. If you already have firewall rules or other settings configured for the typical ports, or just need to switch the listening port for other reasons, it is very easy to do inside of the OpenLiteSpeed web panel. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step by step instructions of changing the default listening port for OpenLiteSpeed server on a Linux system.
