    I want to migrate a wp installation (relative empty and simple installation) on a centminmod server.

    is it possible to use option 22 and then migrate the wp installation or is better to do all manually with option 2?

    I did my WP migrations with 22.

    Steps taken:
    1. WP Vhost with CM / 22
    2. RSYNC wp-content folder from old installation
    3. Drop tables in MySQL Database generated by CM / 22 and import MySQL Backup
    4. Check wp-config.php for necessary changes (e.g. table prefix)
    5. Login to WP with old credentials, update permalinks, deactivate or activate plugins...
    Works like a charm :)

    my main concern doing like you is about losing "auto optimization features" of the option 22

    What "auto optimization features" are you referring to? This is essentially a regular CM / 22 installation with data import - so Nginx conf etc. are used as generated by CM incl. caching.

    I just download the duplicator plugin and create a backup on the old wordpress server.
    On the new server, install wordpress via option 22, then run the installer provided by duplicator to restore the site.
    It is very easy process, but it is better if you try this out on local pc with WAMP or XAMPP.
