Question

how to configure ghost to point to domain and not domain/ghost

I created a ghost droplet and configured it to point to my domain name eg:myname.com

However during the ghost installation, it asked me for my domain name and now the ghost blog is at myname.com/ghost.

I am looking for help on how to access my ghost blog at byname.com and not /ghost.

I am new to ghost and would welcome any help or suggestions.

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

According to the official Ghost Documentation, you can change your Ghost URL with the following command:

ghost config url https://my-domain.com

In order to run the command you need to first SSH to your droplet, you could follow the steps here on how to do that:

Hope that this helps!
