Hey there, I have ghost currently running in Docker and I would like to configre it to use a custom SMTP host. I believe you can do this in the config file, however I’m wondering if you can do it through environment variables, and if so, how?
Yep, take a look at Configuration - Adapt your publication to suit your needs!
Do note that the variables have to be lowercase
Ah thanks! Is there anyway to use this with newsletters?
No. That’s covered in the FAQ Why do I have to set up Mailgun?
Ok, I had the same problem. I have hosted my website on a Docker container and I had to edit the config.production.json file to add my credentials. I knew there must be some options to use environment variables and I found it in the actual documentation itself. Here’s my docker-compose.yml file on how to set up environment variables.
