I’ve spent a month or so building out a theme, website, content and all, locally via MAMP and I’m now ready to go live. I’ve followed the tutorial below to setup Ghost via Digital Ocean:
I’ve created the droplet in Digital Ocean and now see the default theme and default installation:
I now need to copy my local version into production, however, I can’t find any docs on how to do it. As I already have a working /car/www/ghost install on Digital Ocean my best guess is to:
- taz.gz my local ‘/ghost’ directory, and replace the production ‘/ghost’ directory with it.
- Export the local MySQL database, create new one in production and import
- Update some config file somewhere with the new MySQL details???
- Smile and wave.
Before I attempt this is there guidance anyone could please share?
