    Is that with default PHP 5.6 or 7.4 installer ? For PHP 7.4 installer probably about right with 1 cpu core. More cores = faster install :)

    Yep, that's the 7.4 straight install on 1 cpu. I'm moving toward non CMS sites (where I can) with manual additions and blazing fast speeds. I can hire a full time VA for $300 a month vs. dealing with all kinds of server, database, and other issues. HTML only and it's fast. Speed is a huge factor. Obviously, I'm talking about static sites with no interaction. Interaction that happens on social media now.

    On thing I did notice, I could not disable PHP or MYSQL no matter what I did. Every time I rebooted, back on, even with the correct - stopping and setting it not to start again. Not sure what is up there but I'd love to have those off and just an NGINX server.

    should be able to disable PHP on server reboot either using
    Code (Text):
    service php-fpm stop
    chkconfig php-fpm off
    

    or
    Code (Text):
    systemctl stop php-fpm
    systemctl disable php-fpm
    

    and if you want to re-enable PHP on server reboot
    Code (Text):
    service php-fpm start
    chkconfig php-fpm on
    

    or
    Code (Text):
    systemctl start php-fpm
    systemctl enable php-fpm
    

    For MariaDB MySQL with CentOS 7 at least the service name is mariadb as mysql name might not register as an alias sometimes

    Those are what I used.

    Code:
    [root@server ~]# php -v

    [root@server ~]# systemctl stop php-fpm
    [root@server ~]# systemctl disable php-fpm
    [root@server ~]# reboot

    php -v is standalone command line which will work regardless if php-fpm service is enabled/running

    use
    Code (Text):
    systemctl status php-fpm

    to check for whether php-fpm is actually running

    centmin mod command short cuts would be
    Code (Text):
    fpmstatus

    compare active since time to your output for command
    Code (Text):
    uptime

    or
    Code (Text):
    fpmstatus | grep Active; uptime

    to see if php-fpm started at reboot time or if something else started php-fpm service

    example PHP-FPM was activated/started 4mins 21 seconds ago but uptime is 16+ days
    Code (Text):
    fpmstatus | grep Active; uptime
       Active: active (running) since Tue 2020-12-15 02:16:35 UTC; 4min 21s ago
     02:20:57 up 16 days,  3:03,  1 user,  load average: 0.02, 0.10, 0.13

    Here's the output.
    Code:
    # fpmstatus | grep Active; uptime
       Active: active (running) since Mon 2020-12-14 05:08:00 UTC; 21h ago
     03:02:29 up 1 day,  2:07,  1 user,  load average: 0.00, 0.01, 0.05
    
    The Vultr server is nice, I think it's faster than the SSDNodes 6 CPU server. LOL!

    yeah SSDnodes 6 cpu benchmarked like at 1.4x real cpus so I suspect Vultr would be faster.

    Your PHP-FPM service started like 3hrs after server rebooted :)
