Yes, cheeky, I know, but it's an open source project, after all
I look after a web stack that is, at best, a tad shonky - and I'm looking to replace it, ideally with Symbiosis as it removes a lot of the overhead of the admin side. the fact that previous sysadmins put the vhost configuration across both /etc/apache2/apache2.conf and also in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled suggests to me that they weren't exactly following best practises...
But I digress; when I build Symbiosis on a clean Jessie install (just built with Open SSH server and 'default utilities' - nothing else) when I get to the stage of completion, Apache fails to start.
I had a chat with Dave about this a while back through official support channels, but pressures in this job mean I'm, er, not exactly flush for research time; I'm currently going through replacing all the core infrastructure here, natch.
So, has anyone recently built a working Symbiosis instance outside of the BM infrastructure, and how did it go for you? Got any suggestions? I'm pretty sure this all used to work, and it's possibly the Lets Encrypt implementation that gives it a problem:
Currently, Apache2 won't start because..

This is for the computer hostname as far as I can ascertain, rather than the specific vhost under /srv - I did try putting 'false' and 'selfsigned' in ssl-provider as documented here:
To no avail
I've tried deleting the original Symbiosis folder under srv and recreating it - no change.
Anyone got any bright ideas?
Quite happy to rebuild this machine from scratch if necessary and follow 'dummy mode' intructions - I'm well aware that Symbiosis has many, may benefits over a semi-pro/dirty Apache install so I'm keen to get this up and running - and it might be useful for others to see if there are any gotchas.
Kail Saram, etc
(and yes, I tried to convince the powers that be at my place that a managed Symbiosis box would be good idea; no, they weren't interested)
PS: more than happy to be a guineau pig for testing if necessary.
PPS: Yeah, thought you'd like that, Telyn
