    I started using Centminmod about two months ago. MY first install is on a KVM VPS with 3 cores, 8 GB memory, Centos 7.x (latest). I have Wordpress installed on the standard centminmod stack with Memcached, ioncube (required by one WP plugin). Thus far, I have read on optimization but have stuck with the out of the box centminmod setup with application optimization within WP.

    I very much like the way centminmod is built - it appears that the choices have been logical and aimed at providing clean upgrades and ease of management. The only issues I have had is temporary crashing of Wordpress due to upgrades. That appears to be caused by cache but that is an assumption based on the fact that this is temporary, not because of tracing it to cache issues. Often a reboot has fixed it... brute force approach.

    The documentation and board support is among the best. One problem I find with server/web platforms is that getting to the right information can get bogged down by the volume of board posts and official documentation. EVA does a great job in documenting. However, one suggestion is that board members occasionally volunteer to provide summaries with action to fix, if that is appropriate, for long topics.

    welcome @robert syputa to Centmin Mod Community and Centmin Mod. Thanks for the feedback. Depending on the Wordpress caching method, you generally should be able to workaround wp updates and caching with just restart nginx + php-fpm and doing a ctrl+f5 hard refresh in your web browser. Rebooting server should never be needed :)

    Reading the solution in the context of what is discussed is a really part of better understanding the problem and solution too. Getting directly to the solution doesn't usually help folks learn about what the problem was and why the solution is what is it. Also sometimes the solution for one person might not be the same for another person so the context within the discussion may help the user arrive at a different solution discussed :) With Linux there is usually more than one right way to fix a problem - and the various methods might be located in the discussion itself :D
