I am trying to setup a second ghost instance.
I created a new directory /var/www/ghost2 and then ran ghost install from within that directory.
Went through setup and under MySQL settings I used the following:
pass: my root password
I then get this error as it tries to launch Ghost:
Am I using the wrong MySQL details?
I followed the instructions here:
Enter your MySQL username:
Enter your MySQL username. If you have already created a mysql user, password and database with the correct credentials ready for Ghost, enter those details now. Else, enter
rootand your MySQL root password and Ghost will generate a custom MySQL user for you.
Referring to the above, I entered my vps root user and password. I assume this is incorrect? Must I use a
different root username and password for MySQL? If so, how do I know what it is?
How can I fix this? I will appreciate the assistance.
What version of Ghost are you using?
Digital Ocean 1-click install, standard config?
What errors or information do you see in the console?
What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?
