Quick reference


Ghost is a free and open source blogging platform written in JavaScript and distributed under the MIT License, designed to simplify the process of online publishing for individual bloggers as well as online publications.

How to use this image

This will start a Ghost instance listening on the default Ghost port of 2368.

$ docker run -d --name some-ghost arm32v7/ghost

Custom port

If you'd like to be able to access the instance from the host without the container's IP, standard port mappings can be used:

$ docker run -d --name some-ghost -p 3001:2368 arm32v7/ghost

Then, access it via http://localhost:3001 or http://host-ip:3001 in a browser.


Mount your existing content. In this example we also use the Alpine base image.

Ghost 1.x.x

$ docker run -d --name some-ghost -p 3001:2368 -v /path/to/ghost/blog:/var/lib/ghost/content arm32v7/ghost:1-alpine

Ghost 0.11.xx

$ docker run -d --name some-ghost -p 3001:2368 -v /path/to/ghost/blog:/var/lib/ghost arm32v7/ghost:0.11-alpine

Breaking change

If you want to run Ghost 0.11.xx, be aware of the container's path difference:

  • Ghost 1.x.x is: /var/lib/ghost/content
  • Ghost 0.11.x is: /var/lib/ghost

SQLite Database

This Docker image for Ghost uses SQLite. There is nothing special to configure.

Docker Volume

Alternatively you can use a data container that has a volume that points to /var/lib/ghost/content (or /var/lib/ghost for 0.11.x) and then reference it:

$ docker run -d --name some-ghost --volumes-from some-ghost-data arm32v7/ghost

What is the Node.js version?

When opening a ticket at it becomes necessary to know the version of Node.js in use:

$ docker exec <container-id> node --version

... via docker stack deploy or docker-compose

Example stack.yml for ghost:

# by default, the Ghost image will use SQLite (and thus requires no separate database container)
# we have used MySQL here merely for demonstration purposes (especially environment-variable-based configuration)

version: '3.1'


    image: ghost:1-alpine
    restart: always
      - 8080:2368
      # see
      database__client: mysql
      database__connection__host: db
      database__connection__user: root
      database__connection__password: example
      database__connection__database: ghost

    image: mysql:5.7
    restart: always
      MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: example

Run docker stack deploy -c stack.yml ghost (or docker-compose -f stack.yml up), wait for it to initialize completely, and visit http://swarm-ip:8080, http://localhost:8080, or http://host-ip:8080 (as appropriate).
