LiteSpeed Cache and Xenforo

Every forum owner wants a lot of posts but high post counts and traffic can bring a large forum to a crawl in peak hours. The falling cost of SSD’s has helped considerably but a good caching scheme is mandatory.

LiteSpeed in conjunction with the admins at XenForo has come up with what looks to be an efficient and well-maintained scheme.
The LiteSpeed Cache Plugin for XenForo (LSCXF) is a PHP-based plugin that communicates with your installation of LiteSpeed Web Server(LSWS) and its built-in page cache, LSCache. LSCache is built directly into LSWS to significantly reduce overhead with greater efficiently than with other PHP-based caches.
The current community version of LSCXF will only cache and serve pages for non-logged-in users. After a user has logged in, their page requests will always hit the backend.
Additional Plugin Features
Automatic page caching greatly improves site performance
Support for HTTP/2 & HTTPS out-of-box
