We have added the litespeed repository so now we will install openlitespeed 1.4. This is the latest stable release including features like Pagespeed, file upload, PHP 7 support, RCS integration and HTTP/2 support.
Now let's install openLiteSpeed 1.4 using following yum command as shown below:
yum -y install openlitespeed14.x86_64
It may take some time so we recommend you to wait untill the installation is finished.
Installing PHP 7
We will have to install Epel repository for PHP 7 so please install epel repository using this yum command.
yum -y install epel-release
We can download and install PHP 7 now for openlitespeed. Openlitespeed uses a different version of PHP so run below given command to install PHP 7 and required dependencies.
By default OpenLiteSpeed 1.4 uses PHP 5 version so we will have to change it to PHP 7 and as we know that we have already installed PHP 7 on our server so now we just need to add a new configuration.
Click on Server Configuration and then click on External App which is shown at the center of web page. You'll see lsphp5 with a socket address so we will have to add new version of PHP and to do so please click on Add button on the right side.
In this tutorial we learned how to install OpenLiteSpeed web server on centos 7. OpenLiteSpeed is easy to configure trough its admin GUI so we can configure it from a browser. We hope now you have enough knowledge to work with OpenLiteSpeed.
