How To Install Ghost on Raspberry pi Running Raspbian

Tue Sep 10, 2013 4:36 am

For those of you who contributed to the Ghost Kickstarter Project the source will be released later this month and publicly released in the next couple of months.

This article will show you how to get node.js, the web server that Ghost runs on, npm the package manager for node, and Ghost, the Kickstarter funded blogging platform, running on a Raspberry Pi with the Raspbian operating system.

Initial Setup
With a clean install of Raspbian run the following commands:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-get update
 sudo apt-get upgrade
 sudo apt-get install nodejs
 sudo apt-get install npm
Download and Install Ghost:
Go to the Ghost download page and download the latest nightly build.

Code: Select all

 unzip -d ghost Ghost-Nightly-0.2.2-36.zip
Execute the following commands:

Code: Select all

 cd ghost/
 sudo npm install
Now you just need to edit the config.js file and replace the listening address and port to your Raspberry Pi’s IP address. For example replace "host: '127.0.0.1'" with "host: '192.168.0.10'" and "port: '2368'" to "port: '80'".

And finally run:

Code: Select all

npm start
to start Ghost process.
