    Looks like both @wmtech and @jcat are using LXD/LXC containers instead of the usual KVM/OpenVZ virtualized VPS servers. So started a dedicated thread for this.

    My limited and ancient experience, I found how well Centmin Mod played with LXD was partly related to how the container & host was configured GitHub - centminmod/centminmod-lxd: LXD. Things like setting TCP settings or even properly starting services etc.

    So would be good to know how 130.00beta01 and EL8 OSes fair these days.


    If folks want to share privately with me their host node configuration setup steps, I can also try replicating the LXD/LXC environment so I can also test Centmin Mod on it too.

    We do not use LXC very often, serious servers get KVM machines or even their own metal. ;-)
    We use LXC only for small utility servers. Which usually do not need a LN(A)MP stack.

    However yesterday I did a quick test installation at a small LXC container (default Proxmox with 2 Cores, 2GB RAM and 30GB SDD) with Rocky 8.6 and it succeeded after your modifications. Still playing around with it.

    Since this is a beta test, I didn't want to do the 100th install at a regular, powerful KVM server. I would assume this has been tested more than enough. ;-)

    I only miss glances with the default installation. ;-)

    But dnf install glances helps a lot. :-D

    Much appreciated. Granted a lot of my ancient playtime with LXD containers did already lay some ground work for LXD compatibility. So just needed a few more checks i.e. in your failed Nginx routine :D

    Yeah glances was removed but easily installable again :)
