Deploying Hugo the Golang CMS on DigitalOcean - Nginx

Deploying Hugo the Golang CMS on DigitalOcean Creating a Droplet I am a bit partial to CentOS. The lastest version as of this writing is CentOS Linux release 7.1.1503 (Core). Setting up a droplet is always very simple. Just turn it on basically. Upload your ssh keys. Done. Install Nginx Add the epel repo: yum install epel-release Install yum install nginx Start it service nginx start systemctl enable nginx Create the Folders mkdir -p /var/www/ursite/ chown -R nginx:nginx /var/www touch /var/www/ursite/index.html - or clone your site cp /etc/nginx/sites-available/default /etc/nginx/sites-available/ursite Configure nginx open the config file: vim /etc/nginx/conf.d/virtual.conf Add the following: # # A virtual host using mix of IP-, name-, and port-based configuration # server { listen 80; server_name scotttactical.com; server_alias go.scotttactical.com; location / { root /var/www/stac/public/; index index.html; } } Install Go + Hugo yum install go I decided to install from source Edit your bash script to have the proper variables in place.

Hugo: A replacement for Wordpress

Hugo: A Replacement for Wordpress TL;DR I researched go Found Hugo Setup a test Migrated my Wordpress instance Launched DigitalOcean Droplet Deployed Total time: 6 hours Continued: My problems started almost a year before I took up this cause. At the time I only had 2 Wordpress sites. Very very low traffic. Only a couple users a day. They were mostly place holders for business sites. Wordpress is hungry What was annoying about the case was that they would randomly carsh!
