Why backup or restoration fails on LightSpeed web server?

Website backup or restoration is a complex process which may take a couple of minutes depending on many circumstances. When the allocated time is not sufficient to complete the process, the backup or restoration ends up with execution timeout exception. This topic covers how to set up LiteSpeed web server so that a long running script will not be interrupted before it has finished.

Adding this in an early position in the .htaccess file in your WordPress root folder may fix the problem:

<IfModule Litespeed>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule .* - [E=noabort:1]
</IfModule>
