    Is it possible to add some checks at the beginning of the installer to check if the user is using mobile minimal or core version of centos?

    I am using a core version and I got soo many errors throughout the process but it kept on going on without exiting and then it told me the installer completed but obviously not as php, nginx never installed.

    there shouldn't be any errors with full or minimal versions of CentOS for centmin mod installs

    You'll need to post on the forums with the following info
    • Server or VPS details ? XEN, KVM, OpenVZ, VMWare or dedicated server ? OS ? CentOS 6.7 or 7.2 ? 32bit or 64bit ?
    • What version of Centmin Mod ? .07 stable or 08 stable or .09 beta01 or another branch version ?
    • Was it fresh install or upgrade ?
    • Method of install ? Via centmin.sh menu option 1, Git install or curl one liner install as outlined at centminmod.com/download.html ?
    • How long ago did you install Centmin Mod ?

    Troubleshooting Initial Install

    To troubleshoot initial installation, you need to check the initial install log at /root/centminlogs and instructions under Sharing logs and errors heading for using Pastebin.com or Gists to share a sanitised version of the contents of the initial install log. You can see full details at How to troubleshoot Centmin Mod initial install issues

    Example list /root/centminlogs files in date ascending order and grep for install.log
    Code (Text):
    ls -lahrt /root/centminlogs | grep install.log

    example output returns install log at /root/centminlogs/centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-112321_install.log
    Code (Text):
    ls -lahrt /root/centminlogs | grep install.log
    -rw-r--r--  1 root root 2.2M Oct 11 01:40 centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-112321_install.log

    in SSH use cat to ouput contents of /root/centminlogs/centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-112321_install.log. Clear your SSH client window/buffer so only output is the contents of the file
    Code (Text):
    cat /root/centminlogs/centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.09.001_111016-112321_install.log

    Then copy and paste into Pastebin.com or Gists entry. If your SSH window scroll buffer isn't that large to get the whole contents of the install log, you can download file manually and copy and paste contents. But makes sure it's sanitised version of the contents of the initial install log as outlined at How to troubleshoot Centmin Mod initial install issues
