Install Ghost Blogging Platform Di Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa

Posted on

Ghost is a free and open source blogging platform written in JavaScript and distributed under the MIT License, designed to simplify the process of online publishing for individual bloggers as well as online publications. Wikipedia

Aku akan memakai kontainer ubuntu 20.04 untuk dipasang Ghost. Pertama, aku bikin dulu kontainer-nya dengan nama ghost dan base image ubuntu/focal

└─▪  lxc launch images:ubuntu/focal ghost
Creating ghost
Starting ghost                              

Kemudian aku akan exec shell ke dalam kontainer ghost

└─▪  lxc exec ghost -- bash

Dari dalam kontainer ghost, aku akan bikin user baru bernama sumar kemudian install nginx dan curl

└─▪  lxc exec ghost -- bash
root@ghost:~# apt update

root@ghost:~# adduser sumar
Adding user `sumar' ...
Adding new group `sumar' (1001) ...
Adding new user `sumar' (1001) with group `sumar' ...
Creating home directory `/home/sumar' ...
Copying files from `/etc/skel' ...
New password: 
Retype new password: 
passwd: password updated successfully
Changing the user information for sumar
Enter the new value, or press ENTER for the default
        Full Name []: Sumarsono
        Room Number []: 
        Work Phone []: 
        Home Phone []: 
        Other []: 
Is the information correct? [Y/n] Y

root@ghost:~# usermod -aG sudo sumar

root@ghost:~# su - sumar            
To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

sumar@ghost:~$ sudo apt-get install nginx curl
[sudo] password for sumar: 
Do you want to continue? [Y/n] y

Selanjutnya, aku akan pasang nodejs versi 14 yang dibutuhkan oleh ghost, dilanjutkan dengan memasang ghost-cli pakai npm

sumar@ghost:~$ curl -sL | sudo -E bash

sumar@ghost:~$ sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

sumar@ghost:~$ sudo npm install ghost-cli@latest -g

Lanjut, saatnya bikin website pakai ghost-cli, dimulai dari menyiapkan direktori hingga setup-nya. Wizard ghost install ini sangat mudah untuk diikuti, baca aca instruksinya dan ikuti.

sumar@ghost:~$ sudo mkdir -p /var/www/
sumar@ghost:~$ sudo chown sumar:sumar /var/www/
sumar@ghost:~$ sudo chmod 755 /var/www/        
sumar@ghost:~$ cd /var/www/            
sumar@ghost:/var/www/$ ghost install
