    Please fill in any relevant information that applies to you:
    • Nginx Version Installed: i.e. 1.23.4
    I don't see any mention here to not install 1.25. I just built a server and wanted to check before running Centmin 4.

    Nginx 1.27.x
    MariaDB 10.x/11.4+
    The way Nginx mainline branches work - odd number like 1.21, 1.23, 1.25 is their initial dot zero minor releases are exactly the same code as the last minor mainline branch. So 1.25.0 is same code as 1.23.4 so really no difference at first. Also Nginx 1.24.0 stable minor release is also same code as Nginx 1.23.4 and 1.25.0. Then 1.25.1 starts deviating with new features and code like HTTP/3 support which is experimental alpha at best and not ready for production. Hence why Centmin Mod Nginx does not enable HTTP/3 support in Nginx 1.25 branch by default but I do continued HTTP/3 testing behind variable flags.

    Only Centmin Mod 130.00beta01 has the Nginx HTTP/3 1.25 support routines. And only AlmaLinux and Rocky Linux EL8+ private beta installers are installing Nginx 1.25 by default for now (will change soo though)

    Basically Centmin Mod users aren't missing out using Nginx 1.23.4 compared to Nginx 1.25 early minor releases unless they specifically want to test out Nginx 1.25 features - of which HTTP/3 isn't production ready
