Hello I’m trying to setup ghost on my new droplet in a sub directory but cant get it to work for the life of. I’ve followed the these tutorials:

I basically want my main website to be (which is working) and then a link to where my ghost website will be present (currently going to this link just displays all the files in that directory)

Any suggestions on what may be wrong?

ProxyPass and ProxyPassReverse take a relative URI path, not the actual filesystem path to your website.


        ProxyPass /var/www/
        ProxyPassReverse /var/www/ http:/


        ProxyPass /blog
        ProxyPassReverse /blog http:/

and restart Apache:

sudo service apache2 restart

You might have to edit Ghost’s configuration and set the site url to as well.
