Is it possible to run Ghost without installing Ghost CLI?


Hi, folks, I like to run Ghost for an project but I can’t really use Ghost CLI as it requires installing npm package globally which is not allowed in my environment. Is it possible to run Ghost with manual setup and start a process with node xxx.js? If so, where may I find a guide? Thank you very much.


Hi there. I think you may find this article useful.

I used to use a platform called serverpilot to manage my servers and i wanted to make make sure that i dont use and super user privileges in setting up my ghost blogs. Please note that i didnt follow this guide step by step. You mileage may vary.

Hope this helps.


How about docker? If you can use docker, you do not have to worry about npm at all :slight_smile:
