What order do you install software for LEMP and Ghost?

I want to create a Ghost blog using a LEMP stack. Does it matter what order I install Nginx, MySQL, PHP, and Ghost? Or do you not even need all of that software for a Ghost blog? I am using Ubuntu 16.04 (64 bit).

@gibbiv - ghost uses the node framework, so you need to install and configure nodejs using apt-get before installing ghost. I took the easy one-click route when I tried ghost, so I recommend using an inexpensive droplet with the one-click ghost app as a reference. You can destroy the reference droplet later once your roll-your-own ghost installation is stable.
