    Centmin Mod is provided as is without support. I only work on Centmin Mod in my free time. So users feel free to help each other out which is the ideal goal of this community forum :)

    Centmin Mod Logs
    However, to properly troubleshoot and diagnose Centmin Mod initial install issues, you need to look deeper into the install logs which are automatically created when you run initial install menu option #1 or when you run any of the CLI install methods (from 1.2.3-eva2000.07 beta and onwards). These install logs are automatically created as per FAQ 7 outline at http://centminmod.com/faq.html

    For example
    Code:
    ls -lhrt /root/centminlogs/
    total 7.8M
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  12K May 24 02:02 centminmod_1.2.3-eva2000.07_230514-155845_yuminstall_centos6.log
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root    0 May 24 02:02 timedhosts_230514-155845.txt
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root  43K May 24 02:02 centminmod_yumtimes_230514-155845.log

    Additional Notes


    • Most common initial install error will be with broken download urls due to changes in the download url location or for YUM repos the release RPM version number is updated. You can see all download urls Centmin Mod looks for at /inc/downloadlinks.inc.
