OpenLiteSpeed WordPress vs regular WordPress one click, which one should I choose?

OpenLiteSpeed WordPress 1-Click

I can’t decide which one should I pick for a wordpress + woocommerce website. I saw it says the OpenLiteSpeed is 300+ times faster than the regular WordPress and I like that it comes with phpMyAdmin presinstalled but I heard the php 7.3 is full of bugs.

On the other hand the regular one click wordpress droplet has Apache, Fail2ban and Postfix.

Can you guys please help me out?

OpenLiteSpeed wordpress:

  • WordPress 5.2.3
  • OpenLiteSpeed 1.5.6
  • MariaDB 10.3
  • PHP 7.3
  • CertBot 0.31.0
  • phpMyAdmin 4.9.1
  • Memcached 1.5.6

Wordpress regular pack:

  • WordPress latest
  • Apache 2.4.29
  • MySQL server 5.7.23
  • PHP 7.2
  • Fail2ban 0.10.2
  • Postfix 3.3.0
  • Certbot 0.26.1

@komi,

Here’s a high-level opinion:

OpenLiteSpeed WordPress for:

  • If you are looking for page speed/high traffic solution
  • Page score can also be improved
  • Object Cache pre-config

Wordpress regular pack for:

  • Full .htaccess file support
  • Pre-config fail2ban service

Best,
Eric
