    Centmin Mod LEMP stack is developed for CentOS RPM based Linux environments so doesn't work with Debian or Ubuntu based Linux servers. However, more and more folks are interested in Centmin Mod but the stumbling block is the unfamiliarity of CentOS vs Debian/Ubuntu.

    This thread is dedicated solely for Debian and Ubuntu users who are looking to try Centmin Mod and need to quickly get up to speed with CentOS Linux system administration. I only have basic Debian knowledge myself enough to manually setup LEMP stack on Debian. But I'll leave this thread for Centmin Mod user's who are more familiar with Debian and Ubuntu to help out other new and potential Centmin Mod users navigate the CentOS world.

    As this thread is more about CentOS vs Debian/Ubuntu differences in system administration i.e apt-get vs yum etc or where Linux software paths are, you may want to keep Centmin Mod specific questions in their own separate threads in the more appropriate sub forums ;)

    Folks I know who use or used Debian/Ubuntu might want to contribute to this threads generated questions so thanks in advance to @Matt @Tracy Perry @RoldanLT @Ahmad @Peace-Keeper @TJA @ModeltogTossen @speedway @Menditsa @JaviPas @Nik @BamaStangGuy @Jeff Green

    Reserved for links to CentOS beginner guides, cheat sheets etc. If you come across useful CentOS guides, post a link in this thread and I'll update the below listing :)

    Figured I'd bump this thread for Debian/Ubuntu folks thinking of switching to CentOS Linux for Centmin Mod usage :)

    Have you already done market research if there is sufficient demand for this?
    It is a lot of work to convert this plus instead of converting Centmin.
    Supporting and managing instead of 2, then 3, 4 or even more systems. (EL6, EL7, and ........ )

    If yes, I would look carefully at which one. Debian or Ubuntu.

    It looks similar but it is different.
    In addition, there is a new Ubuntu version every few months.
    This is far from ideal.

    no no.. misread this thread isn't for centmin mod conversion to support debian/ubuntu but for helping debian/ubuntu users with questions or concerns when they move their web stack from debian/ubuntu to a CentOS based Centmin Mod stack server. They may not be familiar with yum commands, where files and paths are on CentOS compared to debian/Ubuntu so this thread is for those questions.
