Uploading a sub-directory to Ghost IP

Posted January 13, 2016 1.9k views


I am currently using the Ghost one-click install on an Ubuntu server. I have the assigned IP as my private blog URL. Is it possible to upload a folder to the IP to use as a subdomain or a sub-directory? Meaning, if my IP is, is it possible to have a folder called ‘abcd’ with its own index.html and custom css, so that people can navigate to and view it as a separate site? If yes, where do I upload this folder?

You should be able to do this with a little modification of the /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ghost file.

So assuming you wanted to have the folder called abcd then you could do:

 location /abcd/ {
        root /usr/share/nginx/html/;
        index index.html;

The files would be uploaded to /usr/share/nginx/html/testing/

Keep in mind though, that you can never make anything with ghost with the name abcd as it will just get routed to the new site instead of rendered by ghost.
