Ghost Blog install shell script for 500MB Vultr instance on ubuntu 16.04


This script will install Node.js v8 via nodesource PPA, nginx, mysql.

It's designed for a fresh install of ubuntu 16.04 on a vultr 500Mb instance.

Step 1.

Create a sudo user to install with. 'ghost' is not allowed as ghost will create this user.

$ useradd bloguser
$ usermod -a -G sudo bloguser
$ su bloguser # or login as blog user.

Step 2.

Download and execute the shell script, as the user mentioned above e.g. bloguser

$ sudo curl -s | bash
You can’t perform that action at this time.
