Installing an email server on a one-click install Ghost Droplet

Posted October 25, 2014 3k views

Complete newbie to handling a droplet: I installed ghost using the digitalocean one-click install, but now I’m wanting to have an email server on there.
I used this tutorial and ran a script, but being as it’s a ghost droplet going to mydomain/mail doesn’t work and I’m not sure I did the FQDN thing properly.
Any tips on how to do both, preferably without starting over?

The Ghost droplet uses nginx, while iRedMail uses Apache. So you will need to configure nginx to serve iRedMail’s web mail interface and admin panel, take a look at Using iRedMail with Nginx (Ubuntu 13.04 x64).
