Question

Wordpress on droplet with pre-installed Ghost?

  • Posted October 23, 2013

Hello.

My current website (hosted by a Swedish company) has Wordpress installed in a subfolder. My friend uses it for blogging. I cannot install Ghost on that server, so I got a DO droplet with pre-installed Ghost. That works perfectly.

But I cannot point my domain name (DNS etc.) to the DO server before I manage to install and run Wordpress on it too. Wouldn’t want my friend’s blog to go down for too long. I have followed the steps here https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-linux-nginx-mysql-php-lemp-stack-on-ubuntu-12-04 to install LEMP and set up Wordpress, but I cannot access it via the browser.

I’m thinking that perhaps it’s not possible to install both Ghost and Wordpress on a pre-installed droplet, so to speak.

I would pastebin any config files etc. if I knew in advance which ones were needed for one of you to help me with this, so that will have to come later.

If it still doesn’t work, please pastebin both virtualhost files.

Managed to get some stuff working, and I have pointed my domain to the correct IP. When the DNS servers have worked their magic, I will continue setting things up. <br>Thank you for your time.

Perhaps I should add that my plan is to have the WP blog accessed at http://frurinblad.example.com, and my Ghost blog at http://www.example.com somehow.

Well, thank you for pointing me in the right direction, at least ^_^ <br>I looked in the wordpress file I found there, and saw that I has missed a digit in the IP address. The complete file is here: http://pastebin.com/bEAb1LJu <br>I have installed and begun configuring Wordpress now, but I can’t access my ghost blog anymore. I guess I need to make the two installs live in harmony some way. <br> <br>http://146.185.149.30/ is the site, as it stands now.

What do you have in <code>/etc/nginx/sites-enabled/</code>?
