Hi, sorry if this is a basic question, and thanks for reading. And if this is not the right platform, please do not hesitate to let me know.
I currently have 2 instances (two subdomains) of Ghost 2.x running on Nginx on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS on a Linode VPS.
I am working on upgrading to Ubuntu 18.04 LTS but ran into some upgrade difficulties. Steps:
- Everything working fine on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.
- Ran the following to upgrade:
- System upgraded & rebooted successfully to Ubuntu 18.03 LTS. Websites accessible, everything works.
- Shut down & resize my VPS to add 3 GB storage. After reboot, Nginx server refuses to restart using command:
sudo service nginx restart
Based on the error received, it seemed like the issue was with my Nginx config files.
Has any one had this sort of an error? I.e., 2 Ghost sites on 1 VPS running fine on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS but then Nginx config problems in 18.04 LTS?
Also, in general, would the community suggest that it is smarter to upgrade, like I have been trying, or to reinstall on a fresh 18.04 LTS image?
Also, one last question, I know based on Ghost’s documentation that DigitalOcean is the preferred provider, while Linode is one of the latter bullet points on the list. Is DigitalOcean that much better that you would recommend a non-DigitalOcean customer to consider switching? If so, why? I would love to hear your thoughts.
I know I can post on StackOverflow etc., but I thought I would start here. First time posting to the Ghost community.
Thanks everyone, and hello!
