Local Ghost install keeps resetting to default

I’ve got a local install (running in docker). All works fine. I go through the admin setup etc. remove the default content, add a post or two, then get it all setup using the gatsby/JAMstack environment. All work - pushes to my custom domain. Happy days.

BUT, when my little sever, or the VM goes down, I restart and then it’s all back to to the default ghost install.

I know what you’re thinking - must not have storage mounted - must all be being stored in a temp directory, right? Nope - have persistent storage for the content and install directory. It’s all still setup in the docker on restart.

Not sure what the issue is. Why the reset?

  • What’s your URL?
    local install.
  • What version of Ghost are you using?
  • What configuration?
  • What browser?
  • What errors or information do you see in the console?
    NIL - not an error - a reset
  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?
    Build a freeNAS server, start a docker jail, setup rancher, install portainer, install a ghost container, mount a persistent nfs share for content and install file storage, setup JAMstack gatsby (netlify etc.) with git and custom domain.

Sounds like your are using a different database name on restart.
