0Centos 8

Cen­tos 8 has finally been released and will even­tu­ally provide the base for a new host­ing plat­form for us. How­ever it isn’t quite ready as there are a few pack­ages not yet avail­able.


The fol­low­ing are pack­ages that we use as part of our host­ing that aren’t yet avail­able. Hope­fully these will become avail­able soon. Whilst we could com­pile them ourselves, we prefer to use a pack­age man­ager as this means soft­ware can eas­ily be kept up to date.
  • nginx-more
  • cert­bot
  • zop­fli
  • optipng
  • gif­s­icle
  • lib­webp-tools
  • pngquant
  • nodejs-clean-css
  • mysql­tuner

We could man­age without most of these tools but nginx-more is essen­tial and los­ing cert­bot and zop­fli would mean sig­ni­fic­ant recon­fig­ur­ing. I expect the last of these to get done is nginx-more as it’s updated the least reg­u­larly.
