I’ve been running into an issue while trying to configure the apparent “one click install” on DigitalOcean. This is MacOS, using the Terminal. Everything seemed fine until the end, when trying to run service restart ghost has caught me in a death loop. Basically:
- only ghost-mgr has permission to run a restart
- ghost-mgr, which did not appear to have a password, suddenly has a password
I tried it with a blank field, with the root password, and with the password of the superuser I set up: no dice. I tried running the restart as root and as superuser. I have tried every Linux trick I can think of. Same error every time. At one point, I considered shouting SUDO at the screen because it seemed as likely to work as anything else. I did not set a password for ghost-mgr but it seems to have set itself one and refuses to tell me what it is.
Has anybody else into this problem? Is there a way around it? I have been staring at this error message all day and it has just totally confounded me.
