Create First User

Once you have finished installing Ghost, the next thing to do is to log in and start creating your content! In order to do this, you first need to go to the admin URL. The admin URL is accessed by adding a /ghost to the end of your URL, for example Here are some example url's for the recommended installation platforms:




Amazon EC2:

Once you have typed in that URL, you should see a page that looks like this:
