    I find myself coming back to these forums or the centminmod main site looking for common config and log file locations as I dont usually remember... :(

    I think a lot of people may also looking all the time for this information, and with a small change can make things much quicker and easier for a lot of people.

    Perhaps we can add another option 25 or make the motd more useful with a list like this of the paths to important log/config files. what do you think?

    Code:
    CSF Firewall configs:
    /etc/csf
    
    NginX configs:
    /usr/local/nginx/conf
    
    NginX domain content:
    /home/nginx
    
    php.ini
    /usr/local/lib/php.ini
    /etc/centminmod/php.d
    
    php-fpm config:
    /usr/local/etc/php-fpm.conf
    
    php-fpm  logs
    /var/log/php-fpm/www-php.error.log
    /var/log/php-fpm/www-error.log
    
    MariaDB (MySQL) config:
    /etc/my.cnf
    
    MariaDB (MySQL) log
    /var/log/mysqld.log
    
    pure-ftpd configs:
    /etc/pure-ftpd
    
    pure-ftpd log:
    /var/log/pureftpd.log

    made this up quickly for you This is untested so might not work.

    usage
    $commondirloc.sh php
    $commondirloc.sh nginx
    $commondirloc.sh mariadb
    $commondirloc.sh cfs


    commondirloc.sh
    Code:
    #!/bin/bash
    
    function php_file_info
    {
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "* PHP File Locations"
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "/etc/init.d/php-fpm"
        echo "/usr/local/etc/php-fpm.conf"
        echo "/var/log/php-fpm/www-error.log"
        echo "/var/log/php-fpm/www-php.error.log"
    }
    
    function nginx_file_info
    {
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "* Nginx File Locations"
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "/etc/init.d/nginx"
        echo "/usr/local/nginxbackup/"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/virtual.conf"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/conf/staticfiles.conf"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/conf/ssl/"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/html"
        echo "/home/nginx/domains/"
        echo "/usr/local/nginx/conf/conf.d/"
    }
    
    function mariadb_file_info
    {
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "* MariaDB File Locations"
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "/root/.my.cnf"
        echo "/etc/my.cnf"
        echo "/var/lib/mysql"
    }
    
    function cfs_file_info
    {
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "* CFS Firewall File Locations"
        echo "*************************************************"
        echo "/etc/csf/csf.conf"
        echo "/etc/csf/"
    }
    
    case $1 in
        1|php)
            php_file_info
            exit
        ;;
        2|nginx)
            nginx_file_info
            exit
        ;;
        3|mariadb)
            mariadb_file_info
            exit
        ;;
        4|cfs)
            cfs_file_info
            exit

    Thanks this is similar to what I suggesting as an addition to the core menu. I think it would be ideal to use the bash vars from centmin.sh whereever possible to stay consistent, like
    $NGINXDIR
    $NGINXCONFDIR
    $PHPFPMDIR
    etc..

    Adding this to default centminmod install would save those of us with lesser memories from having to hunt every time....

    nice @Skippy i was thinking of just adding more command shortcuts as don't want to unnecessarily populate centmin.sh menu with additional options as a user's SSH client window size also needs to be taken into account or another item would be to start rolling out a /usr/bin/cm command which can tie things together

    I think either way is good. Either to add to menu (or maybe reorganize with submenus)
    Or make a list of the available commands in motd shown after login... Something like this page: Command Shortcuts - CentminMod.com LEMP Nginx web stack for CentOS

    centmin - show main menu
    centminpaths - show paths to common config and log files
    phpedit
    etc

    The idea, as I wrote before is to help us users save time not having to search this site to find essential and commonly used information..
