Ghost on AWS

The Bitnami AMI worked great!But, If you want to use Cloudfront, make sure to forward the headers Origin and Referrer as described here. Without it, you'll get an error like "Request made from incorrect origin. Expected '' received ''.

Here's a few tips (commands require sudo, and of course change my domain to yours).

To set your custom domain: run /opt/bitnami/apps/ghost/bnconfig --machine_hostname

You can remove the bitnami banner with /opt/bitnami/bnhelper-tool

And finally, to access log into ghost for the first time, go to and use your credentials from

cat /home/bitnami/bitnami_credentials
