Configure the Ghost domain name

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Ghost requires the domain name to be specified in the installdir/apps/ghost/htdocs/config.production.json file. For example:

    url: '',

Set your own domain name in this file manually or change it automatically with the bnconfig configuration tool:

$ sudo installdir/apps/ghost/bnconfig --machine_hostname

Then, rename this tool so that it does not change again at boot time:

$ sudo mv installdir/apps/ghost/bnconfig installdir/apps/ghost/bnconfig.disabled
