Ghost and digital ocean

hi all, i’m trying to setup ghost using the digital ocean droplet. However I got an error you can't run commands as the 'root' user. What’s the proper way to deal with this? The droplet has a auto-run script so i’m not sure how to continue that autoscript/restart it/fix the user issue/etc.

Hi there, could you explain the steps you made before you got this message?

hi David, i ended up resolving the issue by just reprovisioning my droplet but the steps prior to my issue were that i had just went to my digitalocean, added the premade ghost droplet, logged into the console and followed the script. it ended up running the setup script and then showed that error when it reached the end when trying to start ghost.
