I am currently running an Ubuntu 18.04.2 Server under ESXi. The server is a fresh install and has no other applications loaded on it. I attempted to install Ghost using the directions provided in “https://docs.ghost.org/install/ubuntu/” though I have substituted MariaDB for MYSQL which I have been told should drop in fine and there are other guides online recommending it over MySQL.
When executing “ghost install” the installation proceeds to "Downloading and installing Ghost v2.25.6 > Installing dependencies > [5/5] Building fresh packages…
Once at this step the server will hang requiring a full reboot to restore functionality. Near as I can tell no error logs are produced.
I attempted to reload the OS in the hopes it was simply something corrupted but the same symptoms occurred.
Can anyone provide any guidance in troubleshooting?
