Apache + NGINX vs Openlitespeed

I got inspired by a test made by @vovler on 512MB RAM VM.

so I did mine to compare between openlitespeed (which I like) vs apache

I wonder why you think of this


Test environment:

2x Hetzner CPX31 VM: 4 cores 8GB RAM

1 running Plesk with WordPress Toolkit. and the other one running Cyberpanel.

both VMs created the same WordPress with the same Theme.

all configurations are out of the box. no tweaks no addons.


MOMENT OF TRUTH?

  • Test one :

Plesk machine Apache
Load: 400 request/1min


  • Test Two

Plesk machine Apache + NGINX (caching)
Load: 1500 request/1min


  • Test Three

Cyberpanel machine Openlitespeed -no plugins (not even LSCWP)
Load: 1500 request/1min



at last, is it really Openlitespeed have such huge performance with low resources demand ? compared to Apache ?

I used to use Cyberpanel, but now I managed to put my hands on a cheap Plesk Web Pro license so I'm stuck with Apache. hope there is something to boost this old beast.

whats your thoughts ?

  • No nginx only test?

    A simple uptime dashboard using UptimeRobot API https://upy.baubus.uk
    Currently using VPS from BuyVM, HostHatch, HostSailor, HostSolutions, LiteServer, MaxKVM, MrVM, ServaRICA, VirMach.

  • Considering most shared hosting provider are using litespeed, it is no doubt litespeed(openlitespeed) must be an excellent Wordpress(PHP) web server.
    Cyberpanel is a simple panel, one click install wordpress, rsync backup etc. If it is what you need, Cyberpanel is convenient and free choice.

    Coffee, please.

    No sorry, I went by the recommended webserver per panel. Plesk do not recommend nginx only on their panel.

    Yes, Cyberpanel is a good lite option. but Plesk is really good, I just wish they can add OLS it will be a huge performance boost. (I guess?)

  • I don't think plesk is good. Maybe directadmin.

  • I believe directadmin support openlitespeed iirc. The ultimate solution is make the whole site static.

    Coffee, please.

    I will shamelessly advocate for OLS on Plesk and invite you to vote if you agree.

    but meanwhile, any Plesk user can share his Apache+NGINX (cashing) tweaks and fine-tunes to better performance ?

  • So, the end result is that OpenLightSpeed is good option. Which free AdminPanel do you recommend then. I am thinking of buying 2Core+2GB RAM+40GB SSD VPS to run 2 LMS and 2 eCommerce based on Wordpress.hat do you recommend? I am bit noob on Linux Configuration side.

    That was interesting read my friend. the problem is most of my site will be huge pain to make static. if not impossible.

    TBH, If you have low experience on Linux, then DA is not your best bet. you have to use ssh a lot.

    I use Plesk now, and I'm not planning to ditch it for DA. Plesk is just better.

  • @mezoology Plesk will be very expensive for me right now. There should be some other remedy. Why I am saying is this bcz I will also have to buy Video Hosting as well as SSL. I will have think of things in budget right now.

  • @ashmanmalhotra I would go Cyberpanel. it uses OLS. and why you need to buy SSL.
    most control panels shipped with Let'sEncrypt free SSL provider.

    Hitch + varnish. Some configuration work, but very powerful once you get used to it.

  • @ashmanmalhotra said: buy Video Hosting as well as SSL

    No one buys SSL anymore, LetsEncrypt all the way

    yes, openlitespeed/Litespeed web server performance for WordPress magically high compare to Ngnix in Cpanel also and the Litespeed web server knows widely use with SSD or NVMeSSD so you don't need too many cores.
