LNMP stack for Drupal 8

In my previous post i mentioned taking notes on how I'm building my new LNMP stack to support my Drupal 8 sites.  Below are those notes. I noted the commands used as well as a few links to get more info for some of the functionality.  

# After installing Debian 8.3
# Update Repository
apt-get update

# install Nginx & Mariadb
apt-get install nginx mariadb-server mariadb-client 


# Edit Source list for php7 repositories

It's been a month...

Time flies when you have to rebuild your web server at least 10 times...

The last month took forever in one regard, and in another it went by fast.  I was running Ubuntu 12.04 and that came up on EOL (End of Life) the first week of August and in reading about the upgrade I decided NOT to upgrade to the next level of Ubuntu (was reading something about them not using a LTS (Long Term Support) release for their kernel so I decided to move away from that).
