Forgot to leave my resolution. Thanks for the adice @Chris, got me started in the right direction. I had added some files to the vendors folder so I had to make sure that they were being linked properly. Thanks again.
Awesome tutorial Chris Oliver very detailed and well explained. I managed to get the server up and running. However, I have one hiccup, after I run cap production deploy some of my assets do not show up. Some images appear, others don't and when viewing the webpage on mobile it seems the css doesn't work as well ( showing the desktop site when view from mobile ). Any idea why this may be so?
The following are two logs that appear in red when cap production deploy is run:
