Dear Gordon!

First of all thank you for the bug report.

It is known CE problem, at the moment you have to reboot the server 
after fresh installation or start nginx manually.
You can use MT#6369 for further references to bugreport.

It happens because we install both Apache and Nginx WEB servers
(we are on a way of migration to Nginx). Both are default debian 
packages and install default configs, which are fighting for default 
ports... Apache won in your case while we need nginx.

At the end of installation "ngcpcfg apply" generate correct/new apache 
and nginx configs and remove port conflicts, but it tries to start 
ngingx before stopping apache:

> Restarting nginx: nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:80 failed (98: Address already in use)
> nginx: [emerg] bind() to [::]:443 failed (98: Address already in use)
> ...
> nginx: [emerg] still could not bind()
> nginx.
> Restarting web server: apache2
> ...

I hope this information helped you understand the issue.
It will be automatically disappear as soon as we remove Apache,
also we are planning to add "Reboot (Y/N)?" hint for users,
but currently occupied with important new features ;-)

JFYI, Also we almost released mr3.4.1 with new CE install CD (which 
reboot the server after the installation):

but it is a secret for now, don't tell anybody! :-)

Thank you for your bugreport one more time!
