    Good day!

    I'm totally new on all topics here and planning to setup a fresh forum site. Planning to get a hosting vendor that can host Xenforo software. Eyeing to avail at Vultr hosting on their $10 monthly.

    Would that specs enough to run Xenforo forum?
    Any tips to? BTW, I'm planning to use Centminmod.

    Any comments and suggestions are appreciated.

    Stick with DigitalOcean or Linode.

    You can also add Ramnode :)
    But stay away from Vultr for now.

    welcome @quicksalad to Centmin Mod Community

    Here's Vultr guide Vultr - How to install Centmin Mod on Vultr.com Guide | Centmin Mod Community but check DigitalOcean vs Vultr vs Linode Benchmark Compare | Centmin Mod Community as Vultr changed their products and much slower than before

    DO guide DigitalOcean - Centmin Mod Nginx LNMP install on CentOS 7.0 KVM VPS | Centmin Mod Community

    Threads to read, pages to bookmark and threads to watch/subscribe to get to know Centmin Mod would include:

    Centmin Mod has Screen yum package installed Who uses Screen for linux ? | Centmin Mod Community - has list of tutorials for using screen at that link

    Screen allows you to start a screen that survives SSH disconnections

    so create a new screen called cminstall, then reattach the screen via -r by name = cminstall, then run CLI method
    Code:
    screen -dmS cminstall
    screen -r cminstall
    ./centmin.sh install
    if you get disconnected from SSH, you just reattach the screen
    Code:
    screen -r cminstall
    to check for list of screens available
    Code:
    screen -ls
    install time see FAQ item 9
    so depends on your server hardware specs and network connectivity i.e. for a 4cpu OpenVZ VPS in LA i just did test install for .08 beta03 took 869 seconds
    Code:
    Total YUM Time: 288.193796281 seconds
    Total Centmin Mod Install Time: 869.500343194 seconds

    yup speed depends on your server specs and network connectivity so looks like a slower server :)

    my server is located in London, dunno why it pointed out to that location though I selected Singapore. Anything else to be configured prior to Xenforo installation?

    I'm now seeing Nginx Test Page:)
