Hi there! I am trying to install ghost onto a Linode server, but I’m not the most savvy web dev in the world, so I’m not quite sure what steps I need to take to finish the job.
My end goal is to host a blog on ghost, running from my linode server, and addressed at the naked domain mnchrm.co, which I own.
I followed the installation guide on the ghost documentation via the ghost CLI, which seemed to complete successfully. Then, I went to my registrar (namecheap) and addressed the DNS to my linode sever’s IP (220.127.116.11). I added my domain name to the linode domain manager.
So, there’s two issues here: Loading the IP address of my server doesn’t resolve to the default ghost blog for me to configure. It just loads the default welcome page for nginx. Did I make a mistake here, or need to do something else to initialize it?
The second problem is my domain. What else do I need to do to link the domain to the IP address? And how can I run it as a naked domain (without “www”)?
Thanks again everyone, and hopefully I can get this up and running as soon as possible.
