How to install Ghost on your Raspberry Pi
Here’s how I installed Ghost on my Raspberry Pi with a standard raspbmc installation.
Setting it up was not so difficult, but a problem with sqllite3 installation required some additional steps.
As reported in this forum post https://ghost.org/forum/installation/2583-install-failure-due-to-sqlite3/, you have to…
You need the SQLite development files: apt-get install libsqlite3-dev (on Debian/Ubuntu). Also make sure you have build-essential installed.
So installing Ghost on my Raspberri Pi (Raspbmc) required these steps:
- Install node.js
- Install SqlLite
- Install build-essential and libsqlite3-dev
- Install Ghost
##1. Install node.js
$ sudo apt-get install node
##2. Install SqlLite3
$ sudo apt-get install sqlite3
##3. Install build-essential and libsqlite3-dev
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential $ sudo apt-get install libsqlite3-dev
Note this will take a while to complete, grab a coffee!
##4. Install Ghost
Install following instructions at http://docs.ghost.org/installation/linux/:
$ curl -L https://ghost.org/zip/ghost-latest.zip -o ghost.zip $ unzip -uo ghost.zip -d ghost $ cd /path/to/ghost $ npm install --production $ npm start
To automate running I used forever as documented inhttp://docs.ghost.org/installation/deploy/, and it works perfectly.
