I don't know if this has been discussed before George but any particular reason why you prefer compiling from source instead of letting a repository, which I think also has the latest version (at least some like Axivo) of each software (nginx, php-fpm, MariaDB, etc.) manage the updates? I mean with yum, all we need to is yum update. With source installs we have to edit the version number in the script. So what is the reason behind this?
