LiteSpeed Web Server Virtual Host Showing Restart Required in Web Admin Console

Recently I configured a virtual host in Litespeed outside of the normal Virtual Host Template I use. Typically I use the EasyRailsWithSuEXEC but this time I needed to use the PHP_SuEXEC template. It was easy as most configurations are with the LiteSpeed however when I performed a graceful restart I noticed that the virtual host I had just configured was showing “Restart Required” instead of “Running” as shown in the image below.
