Help! WSL, Systemd, and ghost

i can’t seem to get ghost setup. Granted I’m a bit of a dummy when it comes to some linux server stuff, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to get this to work. I get an error:

Message: Command failed: /bin/sh -c sudo -S -p '#node-sudo-passwd#'  systemctl is-active ghost_localhost
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.

from my basic web search i see that systemd is not supported for WSL. Is there any way to start/setup ghost without systemd?

I’m using ghost-cli 1.11.0 and Ghost 2.30.2

I think you might be installing Ghost incorrectly…

If you’re using WSL, that means you’re trying to use Ghost for development or local testing. You should be using a local installation of ghost, and you can get one by running ghost install local instead of running ghost install

Hope this helps :slight_smile:

That’s perfect help, thank you!
