    Hello everyone,
    At present I'm using cloudways, I've installed 5 wordpress sites on a same sever and all those installations are isolated. Will all my installation on Centminmod be isolated? Is centminmod fast than cloudways? Is it better than runcloud? I'm planning to switch to centminmod.

    Thanx in advance.

    welcome @Ash to Centmin Mod Community. Centmin Mod should be faster than Cloudways and Runcloud but it depends on your web app and how you configure things. You can learn about doing a test install in below links (6 steps to learning more about Centmin Mod) and compare it with your existing server setups and test yourself.

    As per Centmin Mod official FAQ item 2 FAQ - LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS, Centmin Mod isn't made for shared hosting of isolated/jailed/chrooted users. So any user/group other than nginx will not have access to directories and files owned by Nginx/PHP-FPM users. You can create pure-ftpd virtual FTP users outlined at How to re-create Pure-FTPD user for Vhost? However, they would have files/directories owned by nginx user/group too but isolated to the Nginx vhost you specify. Still it isn't jailed/chrooted so if someone uploads a PHP it can technically still access other Nginx site vhosts as they're all owned by nginx user/group.
    Jailed/chrooted user account/sites is on long term to do list though - preview of what it may look like Previews - Jailed / chrooted SFTP & SSH user Nginx vhost menu

    You might want to try the 123.09beta01 build as it will be next stable release and well has alot of improvements if you check 2nd post change log at Beta Branch - Centmin Mod .09 beta branch Testing. And you can share your initial install times here.
