Are you on ghost 5.21 or higher? Ghost only supports MySQL 8 since 5.0, but 5.21 has the first breaking changes for older MySQL and mariaDB. (Your original post said 5.7 and then you changed it to 8. Are you sure?)
Another possibility is that your outgoing email isn’t set up.
I checked and have mysql 8.0 only and ghost is 5.22.Ccoolify uses docker to make an instance of ghost how do i setup outgoing email is there a way to do so in the dashboard. I configured newsletter and it works.
@Cathy_Sarisky hey so i went to my server listed all containers and went into ghost’s bash and configured smtp there but now i can’t run ghost restart so i created new user but this new user is also not able to restart it. if i redploy it from coolify it deletes al the changes i made . is there a workaround ?
