    No, you should use Alma or Rocky 8.

    Is there a specific reason to go with Alma/Rocky 8 over CentOs 8 ?

    Alright I will test a new install with AlmaLinux 8 sometime soon, and report back with errors if they appear.

    Anything I should do before running:

    curl -4sL https://centminmod.com/installer-el8x-81.sh -o installer-el8x-81.sh; bash installer-el8x-81.sh

    You missed epel-release command from that link
    Code (Text):
    yum -y update
    yum -y install epel-release
    yum -y install screen
    screen -S cminstall -h 2000000

    Try following https://community.centminmod.com/th...-mod-on-almalinux-8-rocky-linux-8-oses.23261/ steps to the letter first and see if it works. I did update each installer example in that thread to make it clearer of the yum and screen commands you need to run before running installers.

    Only real path from CentOS 7 is AlmaLinux or Rocky Linux 8 as CentOS 8 is end of life and no more.

    Do they have a trial period, or free credits for new accounts to test out their service?

    Awesome. I got it all up and running, waiting with the add nginx vhost domain.

    I have my server running currently with my forum active. So I'm wondering and asking for advice for what would be the best way to set up the test server, so I can test on it and get everything up and running while still running my other forum?

    The current forum is running on another droplet, with ubuntu and apache. There's not really any configuration other than the database and xenforo. Which I assume I could just recreate.

    Am I thinking correctly that I should just do a subdomain, where I test and move everything over and then later on I can reconfigure it to be the main domain?

    My dns is cloudflare btw
