Set up Ghost on subdomain specific coniguration
I’m hosting a Rails application, personal site and personal blog on the same droplet. Whenever I go to blog.mysite.com I get the Rails site rather than the Ghost blog.
There are a few posts already detailing Ghost on subdomains with Nginx server blocks but I haven’t had much success and I think it may be because of the nature of my setup.
I’m running a Rails application with passenger, it works and everything is fine there.
The DNS records for my personal site are Digital Ocean but the site itself is Github.io. So www.mysite.com has a CNAME of mysite.github.io
Now I am trying to set up a Ghost blog on blog.mysite.com.
I have an A record for a blog that points to my droplet’s IP. I have a blog.mysite.com server block (the one that Ghost creates for you). But whenever I go to blog.mysite.com I get my Rails application mentioned above.
I’m wondering if this is an Nginx issue, a DNS issue or something else I’m missing.
