I already have Ghost set up and running but I’m a bit curious about this part of the installation guide for Ubuntu.
Specifically, this part:
# and login to your Ubuntu user again su - <user>
Is this really needed? I think this may be a mistake. Because earlier in the guide it says:
# Then log in as the new user su - <user>
Once I had created a new user and switched to it I was still signed in when I entered the MySQL client.
I also wonder about this part:
If you provided your root MySQL user, Ghost-CLI can create a custom MySQL user that can only access/edit your new Ghost database and nothing else.
Is this related to the default Ghost user (the welcome post author)? I ask because I wonder if I can safely delete the Ghost default user if I selected to let the installation script create the custom MySQL user.
