    Best place is watching/subscribe to the software news forums all nginx, php and centos relevant updates especially for security get posted to them https://community.centminmod.com/categories/software-news.17/. Each forum has a RSS icon next to it's last thread linked name, so you can even subscribe within your RSS feed aggregator/app or mobile/desktop etc.

    Just look at past threads posted for nginx, php, mariadb, centos security, openssl, libressl updates as an example. Also if it's security or critical updates, I will send out a forum mailing to all forum members, then to web push browser notifications if you subscribed and then to all Centmin Mod social media accounts (top right header of forum has links). This also helps if you are able to read and see feedback from other users who have updated a specific Nginx or PHP version so you can see if there are issues with update process i.e. recent Nginx 1.11.11 update and bugs

    You can also get creative and setup your own private Slack channels for feeding RSS updates into dedicated Slack channels so you get Slack updater alerts via Slack desktop and mobile apps :)

    Just some of the dedicated Slack channels I setup to get alerts straight from the developer source or get security and product announcements as well as site monitoring ping/healthcheck and uptime alerts from various services :)

    If you use Centmin Mod 123.09beta01, there's also in shell native updater alerts when you log in via SSH for yum and centmin mod updates as well as when you exit centmin.sh menu

    example of exiting centmin.sh menu option 24 when there are system yum updates
    Code (Text):
     checking for YUM updates... please wait...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
      New YUM Updates available for host xeon.centminmod
    -------------------------------------------------------------
      To list available YUM Updates type:
    -------------------------------------------------------------
      yum list updates --disableplugin=priorities --enablerepo=remi
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
      To update type:
    -------------------------------------------------------------
      yum update --disableplugin=priorities --enablerepo=remi
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------
     Centmin Mod local code is up to date at /usr/local/src/centminmod
     no available updates at this time...
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    

    example of when you log into Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 server when no Centmin Mod code updates in /usr/local/src/centminmod are available
    Code (Text):
    ===============================================================================
     Centmin Mod local code is up to date at /usr/local/src/centminmod
     no available updates at this time...
    ===============================================================================
    

    when updates are available
    Code (Text):
    ===============================================================================
     Centmin Mod code updates available for /usr/local/src/centminmod
     to update re-run centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 2
    ===============================================================================
    

    if updates for Centmin Mod code available can use centmin.sh menu option 23 submenu option 2 or just git pull from command line as both do same thing i.e.
    Code (Text):
    cd /usr/local/src/centminmod
    git stash
    git pull
