Installing Ghost on Ubuntu 14

I've been wanting to check out Ghost for a while now, and over the weekend I decided to give it a whirl. I fired up a new VM and installed the latest version of Ubuntu, downloaded the source from the site, and followed the simple installation procedure. And that's about as far as I got.

Unfortunately, something within the latest release of 'buntu is not configured correctly to just install and go. After some Googlin' I found Jinyu Liu's post about setting up Ghost, and he found the magic.

Run the following:
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/node node /usr/bin/nodejs 10
It will fix the Node symbolic link, which is apparently not correct.

After running that, everything installed just as described on the site, and I had a new blog up and running in minutes.
