The Joomla! 4.3 HTACCESS File
# If you are using an OpenLiteSpeed web server then any changes made to this file will
# not take effect until you have restarted the web server.
Our own websites are hosted on a LiteSpeed server.
"We use LiteSpeed, which is the enterprise version.
OpenLiteSpeed is the community version used for single site servers.
We don't use OpenLiteSpeed on the server, so this (comment) can be ignored."
How should you respond?
If your website is hosted on a LiteSpeed server provided by a hosting provider to which you subscribe, then they are most likely using the LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise edition.
The HTACCESS file forms a critical part of your website's defences if you are using a Web Application Firewall.
And if appropriately configured, it helps improve your website's performance in browsers and, as a result, in search results.
You should therefore ask your hosting provider to confirm they are using the LiteSpeed Web Server Enterprise edition.
