    @eva2000 I wonder if this image service from various VPS providers is so much use to Centminmod (time/benefit) anyway.

    After all, each provider has its own principles and methods.
    It seems very time intensive to me to create an image, app market or whatever they call it for various providers (Digital Ocean, Linode, Vultr etc).
    To make but especially also to maintain.

    And ultimately, how many end users are going to use this acutely and effectively? A few?

    Once more because the already present Centminmod installation script.
    It basically installs and configures the server as exactly specified, already.

    As an alternative, it would be nice to have a "starting" page (on centminmod.com server), in which you can select whatever setting you want for your centminmod installation (php version, mariadb version, and all other settings we currently adjust through custom_config.inc) and the page will output your custom script code line to copy and paste to your ssh console. The custom_config.inc should auto-populate somehow... I am not a programmer :D

    This way all the available settings will be in one place, easy to find them and with the appropriate info. It will be helpfull for both novice and pro users of centminmod :)

    Thanks,
    Savvas

    Yeah, it's something I'd like to eventually do similar to my vhost generator https://centminmod.com/vhost.php though my PHP skills sux and it took me forever to code just the vhost generator. If Centmin Mod users have PHP skills, that's one way you can contribute to Centmin Mod ;) :)

    But yes all the options are in the example custom_config.inc though the ones most important are outlined on official Centmin Mod blog article right now Centmin Mod Advanced Customised Installation Guide - Centmin Mod Blog

    True, the only benefit I see would be
    1. for setup time on low spec'd servers i.e. 1 CPU core VPS - nginx and PHP-FPM source compile time would be a lot longer especially if you enable optional PHP fileinfo extension support which requires ~1.5GB of memory for compilation.
    2. where you have custom software installed/configured beyond Centmin Mod initial default installed software that you want to have running right out of the box
    3. quick Centmin Mod development/testing. Though for quick testing I just use a hourly billed VPS provider and more CPU cores 4+ to quickly be able to install Centmin Mod + do tests and then destroy the VPS instance within the hour.
    Definitely time consuming, though benefit out of this for myself is I learnt how to use new tools which can apply across a lot of cloud providers i.e. how to use Packer.io which is bloody marvelous tool that can be used on various cloud providers example here and here.
    And Upcloud has an example with Packer.io too at How to create custom templates with Packer

    I will try as long as I find some free time to build a simple generator with PHP. I will let you know :)
