How do install version 2 locally?

If i install ghost-cli and run ghost install local it installs ghost version 3.

If I try to run ghost upgrade 2.38.1 it says:

Message: The custom version specified: 2.38.1, is less than the current active version: 3.16.1

I have a database file from an old version 2 instance. I’m trying to somehow run version 2 locally so I can open this database file up and export the content.

Hey @josephtaylor :wave:

You’ll need to create a new installation of Ghost since upgrading is only used to update your ghost version. You can install 2.38.1 by running ghost install 2.38.1 --local


thanks so much! totally missed that --local flag.
