It seemed like the auto-renewal process for ssl from LetsEncrypt is not supported yet for nginx, at least according to this article on its publication date:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-secure-nginx-with-let-s-encrypt-on-ubuntu-16-04

My needs are really simple and I wanted to go with whichever would be simpler to setup.

Depends on your backends - nginx is good if it is serving primarily static files and or proxying back to quick responding backends. It seems to be less well suited to slower/heavier backends. Apache always seems to work - slower mind you - but always seems to work... So if reliability is your requirement then nginx may be a problem!

why did not you use nginx anyway? should be faster and modern. did not
have the chance to try that yet myself. still using apache everywhere.

Ugh sorry, I had a test installation of nginx on the machine, which was not
fully removed after doing "apt-get remove". Looks like it would still start
up somehow. After I purged nginx, then apache2 started ok after reboot.

Thanks

Hi,

I've installed apache on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine as follows:

     sudo apt-get install apache2

and it works fine. It does not restart on its own though after a reboot.
Are there other Ubuntu 16.04 users that have it restarting on reboot?

Thanks
