OpenLiteSpeed Rails
by LiteSpeed Technologies

Version 2.7.1

OS Ubuntu 20.04



The Rails OpenLiteSpeed One-Click app automatically installs Linux, performance web server OpenLiteSpeed, Ruby, Rails, rbenv and CertBot. OpenLiteSpeed features HTTP/3 support, and easy setup for SSL and RewriteRules. It's flexible enough to host multiple Rails apps, and supports many other apps including Python, NodeJS, and CMSs like WordPress.

Software Included

Getting started after deploying OpenLiteSpeed Rails

From a terminal on your local computer, connect to the Droplet as root. Make sure to substitute the Droplet’s IP address.

ssh root@use_your_droplet_ip

An interactive script that runs will first prompt you for your domain or subdomain.

You can press CTRL+C and continue to SSH. The prompt will open again the next time you log in, and will continue to do so until you finish the whole setup.

Please input a valid domain:
Please verify it is correct. [y/N]

You can also automatically apply Let's Encrypt SSL if your domain is pointed to this server already. Enter y and your email address to finish the process.

Do you wish to issue a Let's encrypt certificate for this domain? [y/N]
Please enter your E-mail:
Please verify it is correct: [y/N]

Once finished, you should see Certificate has been successfully installed…

Do you wish to force HTTPS rewrite rule for this domain? [y/N]

Enter y to force HTTPS rules to be applied

Do you wish to update the system which include the web server? [Y/n]

This script will automatically go away after your domain has been added.

API Creation

In addition to creating a Droplet from the OpenLiteSpeed Rails 1-Click App via the control panel, you can also use the DigitalOcean API.

As an example, to create a 4GB OpenLiteSpeed Rails Droplet in the SFO2 region, you can use the following curl command. You’ll need to either save your API access token to an environment variable or substitute it into the command below.

  curl -X POST -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
       -H 'Authorization: Bearer '$TOKEN'' -d \
      '{"name":"choose_a_name","region":"sfo2","size":"s-2vcpu-4gb","image":"litespeedtechnol-openlitespeedrai-20-04"}' \
