Useful Tips for Self-hosting a Ghost With Docker

Hello Ghost users,

Last year, we decided to move our website ( from WordPress to Ghost. It was different and taught us many things on the front end and on the back end.

In the last 8 months of Ghost migration, we have ~2,500 members including 50+ pro members. Which is a decent feat, I believe.

We also have had some ups and downs while managing the server and self-hosting the Ghost instance with Docker. So, we summarized them in an article in the hope that it could help others avoid those issues.

I welcome your feedback and encourage you to share your experience and tips on self-hosting Ghost instance. This should help more people in deploying their own Ghost blog.


Super useful, especially the part about changing database from SQLite to MySQL, thanks
