ISPCFG3 + nginx + LXC => running into problems

    I'm busy migrating a physical server to a LXC container and am running into the problem that when I resync ISPCFG3 I immediately get 2 emails:

    So I used sdiff to see the differences between and and found it was these lines:
    sdiff /etc/nginx/sites-available/ /etc/nginx/sites-available/
    server {                                                        server {
            listen *:80;                                                    listen *:80;
                                                                  >     if ( $is_bot ) {
                                                                  >         return 444;
                                                                  >     }
    So I thought, ok, lets remove them and resynced again. And again I get the nginx restarting problem email but now there is only one line of difference:

    So now I have no idea where to start looking.

    I looked through all logs but can't find anything related:
    grep -R -i 'nginx' /var/log/ | grep bus
    yields nothing. And yet nginx runs just fine. Even when restarted manually via command line i.e. /etc/init.d/nginx restart all is good, no errors whatsoever.
    Please ask any questions you think might relevant I'll be happy to share more info about the server.

    I have got some leads, is ISPCFG3 by any chance running systemctl when resyncing? 'cause there seems to be some problems inside LXC containers :-(

    When systemd is installed then ispconfig uses systemctl. If no systemd is installed, then it will use init scripts.

    I'm running proxmox and found a thread in their forums saying
    - is this related? Does ISPCFG3 need that or am I following the completely wrong lead here?

    Hm, somehow I ended up having systemd inside my LXC. Have removed it now and am analyzing to see if anything broke :)
