Ghost 0.5 Support & One-Click Upgrade

ghost_logo_big-300x200We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Ghost 0.5 support on our shared and business cloud shared servers. The new release of Ghost marks “a massive technical progression” to the popular Ghost blogging platform and includes more than 450 bug fixes and a handful of important feature additions, not the least of which is multi-user support, a new JSON API and a beautifully refined default theme. For more details on the Ghost 0.5 release please see the official blog post and the Ghost 0.5 Change Log.

The A Small Orange One-Click Ghost installer available to customers in their account cPanel interface has been updated to support the latest Ghost 0.5 package, allowing for One-Click installations of the latest version of Ghost.


We have also provided a convenient upgrade feature that is now available to customers that previously utilized the One-Click installer for Ghost versions 0.3 or 0.4 that will allow an automatic upgrade to Ghost version 0.5. The “Softaculous Apps Installer” group of your domain cPanel login is located at the bottom of the cPanel interface where you will find a notification link that there are pending updates available.


If your Ghost 0.4 installation was performed manually over SSH, you will need to upgrade to Ghost 0.5 manually. We have however put together instructions to walk you through this process which are available here.

As always, for any questions or comments, we can be reached 24/7 through any of our support channels. Thank you.
