Continuing with the series about OpenLiteSpeed, today AZDIGI will guide you on installing LSMemcached on the OpenLiteSpeed server and optimizing it to bring outstanding performance to your website. So before going into the installation, let’s find out briefly what LSMemcached is.

What is LSMemcached?

LSMemcached is an improved version of Memcached. LSMemcached is a source code that supports the best Object Caching cache available today, you can briefly understand that LSMemcached is a perfect combination of Memcached and Redis, from which LSMemcached was created. With the combination of LSMemcached with OpenLiteSpeed, your server and your website will have extremely superior performance compared to the rest.

So how to install LSMemcached on the simplest OpenLiteSpeed server? Please continue to see the installation steps below.

II. Implementation Guide

To install LSMemcached on the OpenLiteSpeed server, you can follow these 2 steps.

Step 1: Install LSMemcached

To install the LSMemcached source code, you first need to SSH into your VPS with the highest privilege as root. If you do not know how to SSH, you can check out the instructions below:

After successfully SSH to the VPS, install the LSMemcached source code with the following command:

AZDIGI Tutorial
cd ~
yum groupinstall "Development Tools" 
yum install autoconf automake zlib-devel openssl-devel expat-devel pcre-devel libmemcached-devel cyrus-sasl*
git clone https://github.com/litespeedtech/lsmcd.git
cd lsmcd
./configure CFLAGS=" -O3" CXXFLAGS=" -O3"
sudo make install

Command annotation:

  • Command 1: Move to the root directory of the VPS
  • Command 2,3,4,5,6,7,8: Install the source code and the LSMemcached repository.

After the installation is complete, use the following command to open and edit the content of the node.conf file:

AZDIGI Tutorial
vi /usr/local/lsmcd/conf/node.conf 

After you have opened the file, you can delete all the content inside and replace it with the content below and save it.


#default is 8, it can be bigger depending on cache data amount

#If you change the UseSasl or DataByUser configuration options you need to remove the ShmDir folder and contents.

##this is the global setting, no need to have per slice configuration. 
#depends CPU core

Thus, the installation of LSMemcached is completed. Now you use the following commands to enable and set up LSMemcached startup with the system.

AZDIGI Tutorial
systemctl start lsmcd
systemctl enable lsmcd
chkconfig lsmcd on

Then you restart Litespeed is completed.

AZDIGI Tutorial
systemctl restart lsws

Step 2: Configure LSMemcached with your website

To connect LSMemcached to the website, we have 2 methods to connect:

  • Method 1: Connect via IP and Port LSMemcached.
  • Method 2: Connect through the Unix socket port.

It is recommended to connect to Unix Socket when you are a basic user using Webserver with a small model or hosting, you should use connection via Unix Socket. Because with Unix Socket will bring about 30% faster speed than connecting via a network port and better security because the file can only be read as localhost.

It is recommended to connect through the network port when your Webserver scale is large or very large and requires a high load balance. For example, if your system runs a separate database and web server, you should use the network port to connect to LSMemcached.

You can see more details about the configuration of LSMemcached here.

And specifically, the information that you need to declare LSMemcached is as follows:


Now we will go into connecting LSMemcached to the website. With WordPress, to connect to LSMemcached, you can install and use a plugin called LiteSpeed Cache.
