    Hi I was working on the persistent custom config at /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc.

    If I used 3rd party to send email, can I set up in the file like this:
    PHP:
    SENDMAIL_INSTALL='n'         # Install Sendmail (and mailx) set to y and POSTFIX_INSTALL=n for sendmail
    POSTFIX_INSTALL=y            # Install Postfix (and mailx) set to n and SENDMAIL_INSTALL=y for sendmail
    Is '' missing for POSTFIX_INSTALL? I copy this directly from github. Thanks.

    You should leave them at default as Postfix is needed for server sent emails/alerts notifications for CSF Firewall and other tasks too.

    Ok. I just try the custom config above. How to check if Postfix is installed and enabled or not? Thanks.

    I added the code below in /etc/centminmod/custom_config.inc but time zone is still not working with new Wordpress install? Something missing? Thank you so much!

    PHP:
    ZONEINFO=Asia/Taipei  # Set Timezone
    LETSENCRYPT_DETECT='y' # Use acmetool.sh
