Read this in other languages: English, 简体中文.

Scripts to install your own Ghost blog on Ubuntu, Debian or CentOS, with Nginx (as a reverse proxy) and ModSecurity or Naxsi web application firewall for optimal performance and security.

Powered by Node.js, Ghost blog is a simple and modern WordPress alternative which puts the excitement back into blogging. It's beautifully designed, easy to use, completely open source, and free for everyone.

New: Install multiple blogs on the same server! Simply re-run the script with a new full domain name.

A dedicated server or virtual private server (VPS), freshly installed with:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial) or 14.04 (Trusty)
  • Debian 9 (Stretch) or 8 (Jessie)
  • CentOS 7 or 6

Note: A minimum of 512 MB RAM is required.

⚠️ DO NOT run these scripts on your PC or Mac! They should only be used on a server!


First, update your system with apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade (Ubuntu/Debian) or yum update (CentOS) and reboot. This is optional, but recommended.

Select ModSecurity WAF:

wget -O

Select Naxsi WAF:

wget -O

Note: Replace the above with your blog's full domain name. The latest 0.11.x version of Ghost blog will be installed.
