Well, I admitted that the Ubuntu with ghost provides that fantastic open-box experience. However, I really want to know the configuration and the changes, which will be very helpful for me to make further administration.

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.
