    Just came across this DigitalOcean suggestion posted a few months ago of having DigitalOcean support Centmin Mod as an app I believe - one click etc Centminmod Application | DO Ideas. Not sure how DigitalOcean one click apps work and whether Centmin Mod would be suited. But guess Centmin Mod folks voting on that idea Centminmod Application | DO Ideas wouldn't hurt :) ;)

    Not a good idea if you ask me.
    Please let me explain it.

    It is not that the idea is bad.
    It is about manageability.

    Centminmod is getting bigger and bigger with more and more features, functions and options.

    This yields bins with new code.
    It must of course be managed.
    Keeping all of this up takes a lot of time.

    @eva2000 Keep it compact and manageable is my advice.

    And keep an eye on your leisure time.

    Just my 2 cents.

    In a way it can be managed in 123.09beta01 and newer at least, just have DO App after initial install run = cmupdate command to update to latest code - but yeah probably not something for 123.09beta01 but when it goes stable.

    Please allow me to take the opportunity to discuss this even further.
    And take it deeper to the core of the story.

    It is recommended to, if you ask me to improve, streamline, slim down and modernize the code.
    There are so many options that, in my opinion, contribute to little with too much effort.

    For example: GCC 4,6,7 and 8. And on the other side of the grass: Clang.
    Why not 1 with a backup?

    The same goes for PHP, Mysql, Mariadb etc etc.

    Again Just my 2 cents.
    Its up to you.

    well all the optional extras are exactly why I created Centmin Mod - I want to be able to test and use these optional extras and no other LAMP/LEMP stack or control panel out there even remotely offered such options which can be enabled or disabled so easily :)

    Centmin Mod is essentially built to the way I want to do things server setup wise - which is basically 'better than default' for anything I choose to use :D

    @eva2000 Great!

    Anyone can see that you put an enormously amount of time and energy to Centminmod.

    And that is admirable :)
    One again Keep an eye on your leisure time. :)
