How To Use the DigitalOcean Ghost Application

Essentially, we install Node.js and Nginx. You can find the Nginx configuration in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/ghost

There is also an Upstart conf file installed at: /etc/init.d/ghost This allows you to start and stop Ghost with:

sudo service ghost start
sudo service ghost restart
sudo service ghost stop

Ghost itself is installed to /var/www/ghost There is also a dedicated ghost system user.
