Should I add a user for working on my Ghost one-click install?
I’ve been spinning up the Ghost one-click on Ubuntu 16.04 and really digging it. By default, DO creates a ghost user that owns the folder and the systemd service. I need to make some edits to the templates and CSS. What’s the most secure way to set this up? Should I:
- Do it as root? (I’m guessing no.)
- Get access to the ghost user somehow? DO doesn’t give you the password for the ghost user when it creates the droplet.
- Set up a separate developer user? If so, what permissions? (Apologies, still fairly new to this world.)
