I posted a bug report, but it got closed. Nonetheless it has detailed information on my issue so I’ll link it anyways: Ghost-CLI failing on: Checking folder permissions.
After restarting the installation from scratch a couple of times I found that it successfully goes through the entire installation. At the end, when it asks if I want to start ghost, I select
yes. Then when it tried to start ghost it fails. If I try
ghost run it works just fine and I can view the blog in my browser.
To clarify I did run the line of code it told me too and followed the instructions. I retried the installation about a dozen times by now in case I did mess up a step…
