Litespeed Error Log:[ERROR] Swapping directory is not writable:/tmp/lshttpd/swap/

I booted up a server yesterday that I had not used in quite a long time and had some issues right from the beginning. I remembered the server working the last time it was live so I was assuming I could boot it up and test something on the ruby application that was installed on it. Anyhow when I attempted to connect to the web server, which is Litespeed, via a browser it would simply hang. Below is information regarding what I did to troubleshoot, what the error was, and how the error was corrected.

Paused Downloading Firefox, Mozilla Firefox Won’t Upgrade

Earlier today I happened to check and see if Firefox was running the latest software and was surprised to see it looked like Firefox was stuck uploading. Once the download of the file started I didn’t think much else about it until I checked after an hour or so and saw that it was still trying to download an 11MB file. At this point I knew there was an issue with Mozilla Firefox as it appeared to be paused downloading the new version. Below I describe the error in more detail and how to reset the download of the new version of Firefox which in my case was 3.6.8.
