    Looking for some real world information/comparisons of Nginx vs OpenLiteSpeed, I have used Nginx in production websites but never tried OpenLiteSpeed, some of the benchmarks do look excellent for OpenLiteSpeed but was wondering about real world performance to compare them both.

    Preferably if anyone has any statistics of any large website using OpenLiteSpeed?

    Well, I think they restrict RAM, at 8 GB with OpenLIteSpeed. Prefer NGINX and it has never fell below our expecatation.

    • Litespeed: unless you really think you need it, stick with Apache. Apache is way more battle proven.
    • Nginx: Use it when you are serving static files, otherwise, use Apache with a load balancer like HAProxy in front of it. Apache is more feature rich than nginx for serving web apps.

    What I liked about Litespeed is that you can limit requests on dynamic files. For example PHP, there is no way to do this in Nginx far as I am aware. You can limit it for only php, but theres no like "location" ish defining to define only dynamic documents.
