Scripts to install your own Ghost blog on Ubuntu, Debian or CentOS, with Nginx (as a reverse proxy) and ModSecurity or Naxsi web application firewall for optimal performance and security.

Powered by Node.js, Ghost blog is a simple and modern WordPress alternative which puts the excitement back into blogging. It's beautifully designed, easy to use, completely open source, and free for everyone.

New: Install multiple blogs on the same server! Simply re-run the script with a new full domain name.

First, update your system with apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade (Ubuntu/Debian) or yum update (CentOS) and reboot. This is optional, but recommended.

Select ModSecurity WAF:

wget https://git.io/ghost-nginx-modsecurity -O ghost-setup.sh
sudo bash ghost-setup.sh BLOG_FULL_DOMAIN_NAME

Select Naxsi WAF:

wget https://git.io/ghost-nginx-naxsi -O ghost-setup.sh
sudo bash ghost-setup.sh BLOG_FULL_DOMAIN_NAME

Note: Replace the above with your blog's full domain name.

⚠️ Newer Ghost blog versions (such as 2.x) can be found in the official repo. However, if you wish to install the older 0.11.14 version, you may use these scripts.
