In order to make it easier for users to deploy and manage Ghost instances on their shared hosting accounts, we have created a custom Ghost Publishing Platform plugin which is now available on all of our Shared hosting servers.
In this tutorial, you will learn the following:
To access this new feature, you will have to first log in to your cPanel account and then navigate to Software → Ghost Publishing Platform or simply by typing the latter in the search bar located at the top right corner of your cPanel.
You must first click on the blue Add New button to deploy a new Ghost instance.
Here you will have to select:
Click on the Install button when you have filled in all the fields.
20 to 30 seconds after you click the button, you will be presented with your new Ghost installation, which will be started by default.
With the Ghost Management plugin, you can restart or stop your Ghost instance with a click of a button, depending on your needs. Simply choose the Ghost that you want to manage and select either Restart or Stop.
You will be notified of the change with a text message which will be present until you close the plugin or select another action.
Similarly, click on the Start button for the Ghost instance in question to start a stopped application.
If you wish to completely remove a Ghost project, click on the red X button located on the right of that project. This will remove everything in the folder in which that instance is located but will leave the folder present.
