I mentioned in an earlier post that I intended to remain on the Ghost blogging platform…well, that lasted about a week I think. I love Ghost but I wanted something a bit more mature where I don’t need to tweak things as much so I’m back on WordPress.

The technology stack for the site is currently as follows:

  • DigitalOcean hosted with 2GB memory, 2 cores and 40 GB SSD
  • Ubuntu 14.04
  • WordPress running on Nginx with full SSL
  • Nginx’s Fast-CGI in-memory caching
  • MaxCDN

Have a look at my buddy Daniel’s speed guide for WordPress on Nginx for great guidance on setting up an extremely fast site.

So after about 5 or 6 attempts I finally have a solid blogging infrastructure in place. Time to focus on some blogging now…
