Well, string me up and stuff me in a hen-coop!
It took a few days but I finally managed to get Ghost up and running. Since I'm not on Ubuntu and couldn't for the life of me get MySQL running, I had to cobble it together from sources. Now purring happily together with mariadb and in a sane (imho) dir structure.
I just hope I can remember all the steps for the next upgrade/rebuild
