it looks like the problem has already been discussed but the other thread I found is now closed.
I have been running a self-hosted blog for a while then decided to update to the latest version. After upgrading Node.js to 10.13.0, Ghost-CLI to 1.11.0 and Ghost to 2.23.4 I am getting ghost start stuck on Starting Ghost.
It’s been a few minutes and I’m getting no further feedback. This is the debug information.
OS: Ubuntu, v16.04
Node Version: v10.13.0
Ghost-CLI Version: 1.11.0
Command: ‘ghost install --force’
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction
