    Hi,
    i was just experimenting with centmin i really like it but I have a situation where i should skip the mariadb installation part. Is there any way I could skip the mariadb installation part by some tweaking ? The server is clean but i have a percona DB there, no web stack and other stuff but percona is under a cluster and wanted to use centmin for the web stack.

    Is it doable ?

    Centmin Mod is for fresh OS installs only so if you have existing web stack elements like apache, php or percona mysql then i recommend you do not install Centmin Mod as there's no tests for compatibility in the routines to work nicely with other existing web stack software. So not doable right now.

    To elaborate further, centmin mod doesn't just install the LEMP stack software, it auto tunes each nginx, php-fpm and mariadb mysql and csf firewall based on detected server's resources including cpu, memory and disk i/o performance and OS capabilities - CentOS 6 vs 7, 32bit vs 64bit, linux kernel detected etc. So it's highly optimised and expects certain software like MariaDB 10.0 or 10.1 versions.

    You can probably install Centmin Mod first, then manually remove MariaDB and replace with Percona Cluster/MySQL afterwards though.

    But it's partially about what I am willing to support technically with my free time and the known LEMP stack software makes it easier even though I do also play with Percona MySQL as well. But for for efficiency, focusing on just MariaDB 10.0/10.1/10.2 is best use of my free time.

    FYI, if you use Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 it uses MariaDB 10.1 branch which has native Galera cluster integrated as well.

    Setup and configuration and troubleshooting for MariaDB 10.1 Galera Cluster is left to the end user though.
