Create apache site config

Edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/granfana.conf or whatever you name the conf file.

~$ sudo vi /etc/apache2/sites-available/granfana.conf
<VirtualHost *:80>
 	ProxyPreserveHost On
 	ProxyPass / http://127.0.0.1:3000/
 	ProxyPassReverse / http://127.0.0.1:3000/
 	ServerName grafana.domain.com
</VirtualHost>

~$ sudo a2ensite grafana.conf

~$ sudo service grafana-server start

~$ sudo service apache2 restart

Login

You should now be able to go to the site and log in.
NOTE: Don't forget to setup your DNS!
The default user/pass was admin:admin. I tried changing this in the grafana.ini config file, but it didn't work, so I just logged in with the default and changed it through the web portal.
