Tried a new vps, this time using SUSE Leap 42.1 - which did not install as a LAMP server, so...After installing Apache/MariaDB/PHP, prior to following my steps in, koken, I had to follow up with:

# zypper install apache2-mod_php5

# zypper install libapache-mod-php5

# zypper install mcrypt

# zypper install php5-mcrypt

# zypper install php5-zlib

# zypper install php5-mysql

(and mysql_setpermission has to be installed with # zypper install mysql-community-server-tools.

The bitch was, my CMS, koken removed the free theme I was using, "Boulevard" and made available instead the all new "Bouelvard 2" which was available for purchase for $60. But because I had previously registered "ehowton_photography" with them (having used a symlink to "ehowtonphotography") I figured I would just make another symlink, but that turned out to be quite complex. The code which finally worked in the default-server.conf was this:

Alias /ehowton_photography/ "/srv/www/htdocs/ehowtonphotography/"

<Directory "/srv/www/htdocs/ehowtonphotography/">

Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None

<IfModule !mod_access_compat.c>

Require all granted

<IfModule mod_access_compat.c>

Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like what you did there was modify the Apace configuration to go look for the old theme on disk.

I couldn't tell you why, but the default installation of apache2 on ubuntu follows symlinks automatically, but does not on opensuse. The above simply created an alias, much like in an /etc/hosts file.
