adding wordpress blog to a ghost droplet

I set up a new droplet a couple of days ago, with the one-click GHOST install. (I wanted to start using Ghost with a new blog, so I decided to move away from shared hosting and into DO)

I also have a website built on wordpress that I need to migrate over this week. Now before I go blowing stuff up, and to avoid any unnecessary steps, could someone give me some breakdown as to how I add a wordpress blog to a Ghost-running droplet?

I started with the guide on here for installing wordpress on Ubuntu, but ran into some difficulties with the Apache install not working, and then have since backed away a little. Regrouping, and looking for advice now…

Anyone out there willing to guide an idiot through the basics? NOOB trying to learn, please help!

I was able to run Ghost and Drupal in one droplet each with their own domain. I’m planning to add a wordpress site just to see how it works out. <br> <br> <br> <br>This can be used as a reference to run Wordpress instead of Drupal. Everything was a manual install. The Digital Ocean community library was a very big help.

@davsmile wow, that is a great write up, thanks!
