+1 to what Gordon said. It is the only way you are going to figure it out.

You could use something like Ansible so that you can rebuild the server the
same way in about 20 minutes. Yes, it takes time to get Ansible or something
similar to work but once you do, you can build the same thing as many times
as you need and they are always the same.

Just a thought.
