Easypanel can only install using root user

Hey everyone, I’m trying to maintain my ghost website but it’s being a continuous pain.
I have a Hostinger VPS plan, and it provides EasyPanel, wich contains a very easy to use Ghost droplet.
Bad thing is, when I try to update, it won’t let me, cause the folders were created by the root user, and that can’t be changed. Is there a workaround for that?
If I need to use the terminal for doing things probably I’ll be giving up on Ghost, cause the Node JS, MySQL and general permission settings are causing me a lot of pain too, and maybe I might just stop blogging :sweat_smile:
Thanks in advance.
