So I decided to compile a mini tutorial comprising of five parts, which go through the steps involved in starting up a Ghost blog on OpenShift using my experiences. The topics covered so far are:
All of these are covered by the first post in this blog series, Starting a New Blog With Ghost and Openshift.
here. It is a simple installer that does not take long to install.
on OpenShift, this will allow you to make local changes so that you can then push back to your Ghost application.
Before you can clone your blog you need to know the repository url, this is an easy process. Firstly you need to sign into your OpenShift account and you should be presented with a view similar to the image below (of course your name and domain will be different), all you need to do is click on your application (the arrow represents your application).
After clicking on the application you should be presented with a view similar to the image below. You need to copy the source code url as highlighted below (I have removed the full url from my link and only included the starting part, yours will contain the full link), this is your repository url that I mentioned above.
Now that you have your repository you have to open up command prompt and type in
git clone <repository_url> <directory to create>.
<repository_url>is the url you copied from your OpenShift application.
<directory to create>is the full path on your file system where you want your blog to be cloned to.
for you to make changes.
