I'm running multiple webservers on my droplet, using multiple cms services. I'm setting up my first with Joomla. I've read the documentation and put the newest distro in /www/$URL$/public_html/joomla and have changed the $URL$.conf in /sites-available/ to reflect this directory. However, when I go to $URL$, I get the error "Error displaying the error page", and not the expected Joomla setup gui. The internet seems to say there is a problem with my configuration.php, but I seem only to have a configuration.php-dist, and when i created a .php to write to, the error still popped up.

Any help is much appreciated.
