    Finally thanks eva my installation works. (CentOS 7, CMM centos7beta01, php 5.6.4, nginx 1.7.9)
    My Xenforo forum works too, but I keep getting a 404 nginx error after I refresh a page (for example visit main site, go to a category, to a thread, just reload page, etc).

    Error logfile from: /home/nginx/domains/mywebsite.com/log
    Same error over and over again in the log, one example

    Code:
    2015/01/01 14:27:33 2015/01/01 16:50:24 [error] 20749#0: *18 open() "/home/nginx/domains/mywebsite.com/public/alertcount-refresh" failed (2: No such file or directory), client: myIPaddress, server: mywebsite.com, request: "GET /alertcount-refresh?_xfRequestUri=%2Findex.php&_xfNoRedirect=1&_xfToken=1%2C1420131003%2C2a220a460122aed9a54dd40f939ea545dad13331&_xfResponseType=json HTTP/1.1", host: "mywebsite.com", referrer: "http://mywebsite.com/index.php"
    It says no such file or directory obviously, but I don't know what to do in this case.

    I thought this is nginx related or xenforo. But it is an add-on which was the problem.
    I bow to you, sir.

    This time I think it is nginx related. Suddenly my forum kept working ( I was watching soccer, came back and it doesnt work.)
    I wanted to enable friendly urls but nginx is bitchy at the moment.

    I installed via centmin.sh nginx new and it says this right before the installation is completed.
    Starting nginx (via systemctl): Job for nginx.service failed. See 'systemctl status nginx.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.
    [FAILED]


    Starting nginx via service nginx restart or ngxrestart doesnt work either. Gives same error message.

    what VPS you using OpenVZ ? CentOS 7 + OpenVZ has an issue preventing nginx restarts right now, would need a Xen or KVM VPS for CentOS 7

    I am not 100% sure but it is OpenVZ as far as I know and yes, it is CentOS 7.
    I dont want to change provider again and I dont think that they will install Xen or KVM on their servers.
    Is this a problem of OpenVZ + CentOS 7 combination or because my provider doesnt allow?
    Then I ll go with CentOS 6.6 and make a fresh install again. What do you say?

    Yeah it's problem with CentOS 7 + OpenVZ combo right now that I need to investigate. There is no problems with CentOS 6.6 + OpenVZ with either .07 stable or .08 beta :)

    Ok, bad news I have to do a fresh install again :(.
    Good news is that I am so thankful and happy that it works (will work). Better than no solution at all. :)
    Then I wont go with .08 beta this time.

    Have a little problem here.
    I am using this add-on for my forum for installing add-ons.
    Now, it tells me
    There is a problem with permissions as you see. But I dont know which kind of permissions I have to give else other than giving xenforo data and internal_data chmod 0777 rights.
    From server administration perspective, which permission did I forget?

    It seems that I have to set all folders related to Xenforo chmod 777. How secure is it to do this?

    Man, I didnt understand that part (for what I need it, I skipped it) and now I know why I have to do it... You are the best, thanks.
