Getting started after deploying Ghost vps

For best results we recommend pointing your domain name to your server IP before continuing further.

If you already have a vps and would like to rebuild it with this 1-Click appliance, click the Rebuild button in your account, and select "Linux Ubuntu 20.04 X86 64 Ghost Gen2 V1"

After you create a Ghost One-Click VPS, you’ll need to log into the vps via SSH to finish the Ghost setup. To finish setup, connect to the vps as root. Make sure to substitute the vps’s public IPv4 address with yours. To obtain your server IP, and root password please follow this article.

ssh [email protected]

Then, if the installation is completed, you will be presented with all information you need to complete your setup. Please follow the steps described on the screen. Else close the ssh window and log back in 5 minutes.

            Ghost Blog setup is almost complete.
            NOTE: Before proceeding to the next step, you must point your domain name to your server IP address: 10.10.240.32

            Ghost can not run as ROOT. As such we have created a user called: ghostblog.
            Password for ghostblog user: /OALGfdny0GHvvoD and can be in /root/.ghostuser_default_password
            Password for MySQL ROOT user: rOUDj64BtuwnIzjk& and can be found in /root/.mysql_default_password

            To complete the setup, please run the following commands:

            su - ghostblog
            cd /var/www/ghost-blog/
            ghost install

            You will be asked a series of questions:

            Blog URL:
            Enter the exact URL your blog will be available at and include the protocol for HTTP or HTTPS. 
            For example, https://example.com. If you use HTTPS, Ghost will offer to set up SSL for you. 
            Using IP addresses will cause errors.

            MySQL hostname:
            Enter: localhost

            MySQL username / password
            Username: root, Password rOUDj64BtuwnIzjk&

            Ghost database name:
            Enter the name of your database.

            Sudo Password:
            Enter: /OALGfdny0GHvvoD
