The following table compares the different versions of LiteSpeed for SQL Server compatible with LiteSpeed Engine:
|Feature||LiteSpeed 5.2||LiteSpeed 6.0||LiteSpeed 6.1 and higher|
|Can restore backups created with LiteSpeed Engine 1.1.||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Can restore backups created with LiteSpeed Engine 2.0 or 3.0.||No||Yes*||Yes|
Can create backups that are restorable by LiteSpeed Engine 2.0 or 3.0.
(This functionality may be useful for environments, which only have LiteSpeed Engine installed.)
*—May be not restorable, if encryption options were changed for appended backups.
**—If a backup is created using the new @LSECompatible (xp) and --LSECompatible (command-line) parameters
Note: Forward compatibility is not supported.
