Tonight I took another shot at our trusty friend, the LiteSpeed httpd engine. To be fair, a friend and I worked on this thing until almost midnight last night and we noticed some things that gave me a hint about why it didn't work quite right yesterday.
The good news is that our current web server is now running LiteSpeed which is a brutally fast alternative to Apache. As I mentioned yesterday, I hate the Apache web server more than I hate gingivitis. Actually that's not entirely accurate as until this moment I really didn't have an opinion on gingivitis.
So let's just simplify it and say that Apache has stolen so much of my free time lately and caused me so much undue stress that if Apache were a person, I'd put on my best Affliction shirt from The Buckle, drink a lot of RedBull and make a YouTube video all jacked up on caffeine where I ultimately signed off by saying if it crashed one more time I was going to start killing servers.
Yeah... I went there.
Hopefully us running LiteSpeed for the time being will tide us over until we get moved to our new server where we also won't be running Apache. No small coincidence. In the meantime, if you notice anything odd about the server, please report it in the Feedback and Support forum so that I can investigate.
And enjoy the nice fast page loads.
