The easiest way to deploy Ghost is with our official Ghost(Pro) managed service. You can have a fresh instance up and running in a couple of clicks with a worldwide CDN, backups, security and maintenance all done for you.

Not only will it save you hours of maintenance per month, but all revenue goes to the Ghost Foundation, which funds the maintenance and further development of Ghost itself. So you’ll be supporting open source software and getting a great service! Alternatively if you'd like to support us, we're very grateful to all our backers on Open Collective :heart:

 

Quickstart Install

If you want to run your own instance of Ghost, in most cases the best way is to use our CLI tool

$ npm install ghost-cli -g

 

Then, if installing locally add the local flag to get up and running in under a minute - Local install docs

$ ghost install local

 

or on a server run the full install, including automatic SSL setup using LetsEncrypt - Production install docs

$ ghost install

 

Check out our official documentation for more information about our recommended hosting stack & properly upgrading Ghost, plus everything you need to develop your own Ghost themes or work with our API.

 

Getting Help

You can find answers to a huge variety of questions, along with a large community of helpful developers over on the Ghost forum - replies are generally very quick. Ghost(Pro) customers also have access to 24/7 email support.

To stay up to date with all the latest news and product updates, make sure you subscribe to our blog — or you can always follow us on Twitter, if you prefer your updates bite-sized and facetious. :saxophone::turtle:
