Site down

The site can go down if there are errors in your YAML files. For instance, a space out of place in electricbook-0.yml once took the EBM down.

We found the error with

sudo journalctl -fu electricbook

then started electricbook in a separate shell:

sudo systemctl start electricbook

and it reported that error as to why it wouldn’t start. It said a yaml parsing error on line 31 of a config file, which we could then look for among the YAML config files.
