    Hi, i'm a noob site admin. I found this site because i wanted to block bots from scraping my site. I have no idea what Centmin mod is but if it does that i want it already!
    My knowledge of server administration = null so i'm probably gonna get yelled at a lot.
    I hope i can get this working hopefully with a little help of my friends. ;)

    Hi @Pepe
    I'm the same as you in away.

    I think the guys here who know what they are doing will require some information from you.

    Server type... Shared/VPS/ Dedicated
    Operating system Centos/others
    Control panels used ? Cpanel/Adminpanel etc

    Hi again on the FAQ it says "Centmin Mod definitely doesn't work with WHM/Cpanel"
    My server has WHM/Cpanel so, it means i can't use Centmin Mod?

    yup Centmin Mod doesn't work with any existing control panel like cpanel/whm. It has to be a fresh CentOS virgin installed OS with no other 3rd party installed control panels or software stacks. You can get a test vps server hourly with DigitalOcean to do test Centmin Mod install to try out and learn off of
