Can we add lightspeed webserver to webmin/virtualmin?

Why is lightspeed open source version not included/or optional in virtualmin?

From my recent reading it appears to be a far better choice than nginx (which is included in virtualmin) and published test stats say its significantly faster than apache. Quite a number of large web hosts are using it...especially for wordpress hosting with the "apparently new" wp cache technology lightspeed have developed to integrate with the server.

Having Virtual min configured to use Litespeed and the LScache plugin for Wordpress would be an asset to the services offered by virtualmin, especially with cPanel potentially hiking prices.

There is open source version of Litespeed called open litespeed.

After reading a 2016 comment, it looks like virtualmin went with nginx and didn't work on additional api's/modules for alternative webservers, now litespeed is improving load times and server rate limiting, and virtualmin is no where in sight.

I don't actually believe litespeed is always faster than nginx...or uses less resources.

The main consideration is htaccess...nginx ignores It, litespeed uses it. That is a significant determining factor I think.

Nginx doggedly stick to their belief that htaccess slows things down.
