Configuring LiteSpeed Ent 5.1 RC1 with SPDY

Anyone running this version and configured it to work with SPDY? I think I'm having trouble setting this up correctly.

If I simply go to my site without using https, it loads find as usual, but if I access it with https, it takes forever to load, probably over 2 minutes, which also cause my whole layout look like a mess since it's not reading the css correctly or something..

Is that the latest Enterprise version... I know they had a problem with one of their versions at one point doing something similar.
Enabling spdy is fairly easy in OpenLiteSpeed, so it should be very similar in LiteSpeed.

I used http://spdycheck.org/ and it said SPDY was enabled.

Using http:

So i'm not sure what's causing all those requests to wait/pending when accessing from SSL. Also this usually happens if I do a hard refresh on the browser. This doesn't happen if I downgrade to version 4 series, but that means no SPDY feature.

Howdy,

Posted this on the LiteSpeed forum, but I figure it's best to put it in both places:

Sorry to leave you hanging. 5.0 is still beta and we're not sure exactly why this is happening. We're very far into developing 5.0 RC2 right now, so it's probably not the best idea for us to troubleshoot your setup just yet. (It may be an issue that is already fixed in RC2.) We'd really appreciate it if you try RC2 when it comes out. If you have a similar problem, then we'd like to log into your setup at that time and investigate further.

Cheers,

Michael

Would love an update on this from anyone "in the know." I see Litespeed 5.0.1 is out. I'm interested in PHP 6 and SPDY.

More info? Also messaged @MattW for his input.

LiteSpeed 5.x has been running on all our servers for about two weeks now. Several clients have noticed even faster loading times now that we support SPDY.

We've had constant issues with Litespeed on the 5.0 build, to the point we were having to manually update constantly with their frequent build released (got to build 21 on 5.0). I've rolled all mine back to 4.2.X until it's more stable.
