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?
(redirected subdomain to AWS Lightsail instance where I’m installing Ghost- the redirect does work)
What version of Ghost are you using?
latest version of the CLI as via the Ghost website
I don’t know what this means
I’ve used Firefox Developer and Chrome
What errors or information do you see in the console?
I have NO idea what I’m doing with setting up mysql server. My head is literally spinning from trying to figure out whether I should be using “root” as the sql_user and, if so, what password. I keep spinning around and around with uninstalling and re-installing because this NEVER works and the install always fails here:
A GhostError occurred.
Message: ER_ACCESS_DENIED_ERROR: Access denied for user ‘sql_admin’@‘localhost’ (using password: YES)
