What command are you using to start Ghost, and how did you install Ghost?

Hi Cathy,

I followed the instructions on the ghost local Linux install to the letter.

  • npm install ghost-cli@latest -g

  • Created empty directory then cd in to it.

  • ghost install local. ( Here is where the error occurs when it’s about to start ghost as you can see in the post. )
