Running Ghost on and Apache subdirectory

May 4, 2014 2.7k views
Hi everyone! I would like to ask some advices regarding Ghost and Apache. I'm using Apache for running my homepage (static HTML) and two Drupal website (var/www/drupal1 e /var/www/drupal2). I did not set any virtual server or anything, it's everything very basic! I would like to start using Ghost, but at the same time, leaving there the two Drupal websites. What I should do? I was thinking: 1. Find a way of leaving Apache only for and (how??) 2. Create a subdirectory with Ghost, and simply using Apache to forward everyone who is trying to access there (but I would prefer to not alter the url and leave my 3. Replace apache with nginx, but I am afraid of encountering problems with Drupal. Any suggestions? and can I do such things (links for guide/tutorial are very much appreciated!) ? :D Thanks in advance!

You should be able to set it up so serves the Ghost blog and and serve your Drupal sites. You'll need to use a ProxyPass to serve Ghost, so the key is to exclude the Drupal sites from the proxy. In your Apache conf, you'll need something like:

ProxyPass /drupal1 !
Alias /foo /var/www/drupal1

ProxyPass /drupal2 !
Alias /foo /var/www/drupal2

ProxyPass /
ProxyPassReverse /
ProxyPreserveHost On
RewriteEngine On
RewriteOptions inherit

Notice that we define the Drupal sites first.
