Although the install script still configures two VirtualHosts (www & 
users), this is no longer required as MKDoc-1.8 uses just a single 
domain for both the public and editor interfaces.

I get the same error on both the www and users VirtualHosts.

I would start by commenting-out practically all of this template and 
uncommenting sections to see when the error appears.

You need to use Petal style comments as normal comments are 
processed by the Petal engine:

    <!--? <p>a commented out paragraph</p> ?-->
