OpenLiteSpeed Marketplace App

OpenLiteSpeed is the Open Source edition of LiteSpeed cache for WordPress plugin that provides accelerated hosting platform for WordPress. OpenLiteSpeed combines speed, security, scalability, optimization and simplicity in one friendly open-source package.

Before you begin

You need a registered domain name to assign it the Linode server.

Deploy OpenLiteSpeed with Marketplace Apps

Linode’s App Marketplace allows you to easily deploy software on a Linode using the Linode Cloud Manager. To access Linode’s App Marketplace:

  1. Log in to your Linode Cloud Manager account.

  2. From the Linode dashboard, click on the Marketplace button in the left-hand navigation menu.

  3. The Linode creation page appears, with the Marketplace tab pre-selected.

  4. Under the Select App section, select the app you would like to deploy:

    Select a Marketplace App to deploy

  5. Once you have selected the app, proceed to the app’s Options section and provide values for the required fields.

Linode Options

After providing the app-specific options, provide configurations for your Linode server:

Select an ImageCentOS 7, Debian 10, and Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 are currently the only images supported by the OpenLiteSpeed Marketplace App. Required
RegionThe region where you would like your Linode to reside. In general, it’s best to choose a location that’s closest to you. For more information on choosing a DC, review the How to Choose a Data Center guide. You can also generate MTR reports for a deeper look at the network routes between you and each of our data centers. Required.
Linode PlanYour Linode’s hardware resources. You can use any size Linode for your OpenLiteSpeed plugin. The Linode plan that you select should be appropriate for the amount of data transfer, users, storage, and other stress that may affect the performance of server. Required
Linode LabelThe name for your Linode, which must be unique between all of the Linodes on your account. This name will be how you identify your server in the Cloud Manager’s Dashboard. Required.
Root PasswordThe primary administrative password for your Linode instance. This password must be provided when you log in to your Linode via SSH. The password must meet the complexity strength validation requirements for a strong password. Your root password can be used to perform any action on your server, so make it long, complex, and unique. Required

When you’ve provided all required Linode Options, click on the Create button. Your OpenLiteSpeed plugin will complete installation anywhere between 2-5 minutes after your Linode has finished provisioning.

Getting Started After Deployment

  1. Find your Linode’s IPv4 address:

    1. Click on the Linodes link in the sidebar to see a list of all your Linodes.

    2. Find the Linode you just created when deploying your app and select it.

    3. Navigate to the Networking tab.

    4. Your IPv4 address is listed under the Address column in the IPv4 table.

  2. Add a domain name to the server. You can assign it (or a subdomain) to your WordPress site. Specifically, you need to set up an A record that’s associated with your Linode’s IP address. To learn how to set up DNS records in the Cloud Manager, review the DNS Manager guide. For more general information about how DNS works, review the DNS Records: An Introduction guide.

  3. From a terminal on your local computer, connect to the server as root:

     ssh [email protected]

    An output similar to the following appears:

    Linux localhost 4.19.0-13-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.19.160-2 (2020-11-28) x86_64
