Installing ghost

Hi I am trying to install ghost locally and I am getting this error. I have other folders in the local directory that need to be there. How can I resolve this? Thanks
garys-MacBook-Pro ~ % ghost install local
A SystemError occurred.

Message: Current directory is not empty, Ghost cannot be installed here.

Debug Information:
OS: Mac OS X, v10.15.5
Node Version: v14.16.1
Ghost-CLI Version: 1.16.3
Environment: production
Command: ‘ghost install local’

Does it work if you create a directory under, let’s say Documents (or whatever you have) and call that folder demo and in the terminal, navigate to that folder and from there, run ghost install local --db=sqlite

In other words, run the install from the empty folder called demo.

I haven’t tried that wasn’t sure if it had to be in the usr/local folder.
Does it matter where its saved?

It shouldn’t as far as I know. As long as it’s an empty directory and as long as you have node.js, npm and ghost cli installed.

Have you followed the instructions here?

Yeah that worked thanks bear

Ubuntu install, step completed, but NGINX cannot map, seek an NGINX configuration
