LSWS Server restarts every minute

The LSWS server restarts every minute + it generates a lot of small log files. The strange thing is that the server is fully responsive. I didn’t notice that it is sometimes unavailable.

Maybe it’s a cron job? but i don’t know exactly what to look for.

Or some bug caused by moving from OLS to LSWS.

I think that will explain a lot (error.log):

Can you tell me the cyberpanel version of your server?

Version: 2.3. Build: 2. I updated two days ago.

It looks like it tried to turn on OLS but was unable to. Time and frequency match logs from error.log.
Maybe this problem is due to the fact that it was OLS to begin with and I entered LSWS licenses. LSWS was not installed on a clean server.

I found topic with similar problem - I need httpd.conf file for litespeed Enterprise

@mesut solution helped:

5- i used systemctl list-unit-files command and saw openlitespeed active as long as in the logs it seems to want to start still,
6- i entered below command in ssh and restarting of webserver fixed.

systemctl disable openlitespeed

Thank you for your involvement in solving my problem!
