Trying to install LetsEncrypt on ubuntu 16 / apache with Discourse

Apache Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 16.04

Hi,

I've followed this same tutorial for my dropplet with Wordpress and no problem at all. Now, with Discourse i'm getting a weird error when i give this cmd:

sudo certbot --apache -d example.com
Error while running apache2ctl graceful.
httpd not running, trying to start
Action 'graceful' failed.
The Apache error log may have more information.

AH00112: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/lib/letsencrypt/tls_sni_01_page/] does not exist
AH00112: Warning: DocumentRoot [/var/lib/letsencrypt/tls_sni_01_page/] does not exist
AH00558: apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain name, using 127.0.1.1. Set the 'ServerName' directive globally to suppress this message

AH00015: Unable to open logs

Error while running apache2ctl graceful.
httpd not running, trying to start

Can anyone help me with this. I'm not a server / network guy, so this is like ET language for me.

Thank you in advanced.

Best
Carlos

Hi @cpinho

Can you run this command to list all services listening on various ports:

sudo lsof -iTCP -sTCP:LISTEN -P
