    After years of configuring servers its so nice to just paste a command come back in 30 min and the whole thing is done ready to rock. Even for large sites minimal config is required.


    Xf2.0 Site is fairly seasonal so that is normal.

    Moving from DEB to RPM hell has been an experience, but a good one.

    I have 3 servers running centmin.

    Currently, and my reason for posting is that I have setup MailCow behind CentMinMod installation but need help with a few elements (like CSF, currently csf -x...).

    I chose mailcow over mail in a box because of the progress with mailinabox seems to be lacking, its also only supports Ubuntu 14.x lts.. and with 16 out and 18 coming its hard to find a host.

    Mailcow is docker which i have not used. But after struggling with it, its not that bad. Also because its docker it works (should work) on anything.

    I've moved my email server from Windows based mdaemon to mailcow because of cost. £400 a year is too expensive on top of the cost of the server.

    So far moving has been easy. Also the guides with MailCow for dns settings has been excellent.


    Looking forward to writing this tutorial and getting the last bits together with the help of the community.
