Wt Web Toolkit on shared litespeed host

As excited as I was about wt, I was equally worried that I would not be able to get wt set up correctly since I use a shared host.  

First, shout out to downtownhost.com for all the support.  They use litespeed, for which there seems to be no setup instructions online.  

We finally got it going by:

  1. adding the Wt app as a FastCGI “External application” in litespeed’s admin interface
  2. then /path/to/relevent/folder/under/webroot/.htaccess: AddType application/x-httpd-[insert name of ext app here] [insert file extension]

I would prefer to use a SetHandler instead of the dummy file required by AddType, but I’m really splitting hairs now – it’s working, so I’ll put it on my list of things I’m not doing now and start coding already!

UPDATE: The above approach is unworkable because:

  1. My shared host uses Apache configurations (not the Litespeed admin console) to set up virtual hosts
  2. In it’s current version (4.0.1), Litespeed does not support Apache configurations for FastCGI (Litespeed support said that they will be implemented in the next subversion.

What this means is that my app would be started by the Litespeed web server under its user and group IDs, not suExeced like PHP or CGI apps.  Because I do not own the process, every time there is a problem with it (or I update the binary), I would have to contact customer support and have them manually kill the processes.  Obviously, this would not work.

However, it doesn’t matter anyway because…

After several emails with Koen from Wt, I found out that, for a public site, they recommend using the built-in wthttp server with the public web server (e.g. Aapche) as a reverse proxy.  I can not do for the same two reasons – my hosts method of virtual hosting and the limits to Apache configurations in Litespeed (in this proxy configs)

So, I’m switching to one of my host’s servers with Apache, which can easily be configured as a reverse proxy with wthttp (the user will communicate with Apache, which will forward all requests to wthttp, without the user ever knowing that anything is going on behind the scenes).
