Local Ghost Admin page is blank; files 404

If you’re looking for some help, it’s important to provide as much context as possible so that people are able to assist you. Try to always mention:

  • What’s your URL?

Local only at the moment. It’s just a white page at http://localhost:2368/ghost/

  • What version of Ghost are you using?

I can access my pages just fine and I was able to access my admin page yesterday.

Ghost-CLI version: 1.11.0
Ghost version: 2.31.1 (at ~/myBLOG/ghost)
  • What configuration?
  "url": "http://localhost:2368/",
  "server": {
    "port": 2368,
    "host": ""
  "database": {
    "client": "sqlite3",

  "logging": {
    "transports": [

  • What browser?

Any browser really, I guess.

  • What errors or information do you see in the console?

  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?

Try to go to /ghost/ admin URL and observe console.

I fixed it!

Here’s what I did:

  1. Installed a fresh Ghost blog
  2. Copied the local SQLite file (should be located in /content/data) of the corrupted admin blog and replaced the database file in the fresh new blog.
  3. Restarted new blog via ghost restart
  4. Success!
