Configuring an Existing Octopress Site on a New Machine
Every time I set up a new machine, I have to figure out how write posts on my Octopress blog. I usually follow these instructions, but have to tweak them slightly to work for me. I fanally decided to write down the exact steps I use so I don’t have to figure them out every time. Hopefully it’s useful for someone else as well.
Step 1 – Run Octopress setup
git clone git://github.com/imathis/octopress.git octopress
cd octopress # If you use RVM, You'll be asked if you trust the .rvmrc file (say yes).
ruby --version # Should report Ruby 1.9.3
gem install bundler # On Linux/OSX you may need to run "sudo gem install bundler" instead
The main purpose of setting up Octopress like this is to get the main layout configured correctly.
