In this recent post to his site Samuel Stenton shows you how to get Ghost (a recent player in the blogging space) and Node.js installed on a Laravel Forge server. The Laravel Forge service makes it quick and easy to create and launch virtual machines on the cloud service of your choosing.
He's broken it down into five steps (not including signing up for Forge if you haven't already):
- Step 1: Install Node.js
- Step 2: Download and Configure Ghost
- Step 3: Install and Run
- Step 3: Configure NGINX to Serve our Ghost Blog Correctly
- Step 5: Not finished quite yet!
That final step includes the instructions to restart the needed software when/if the server happens to be rebooted.
