Rather than ask for support on The Unrecommended (my lot, sadly), a question instead on what Ghost normally does:
Is the /content folder in the currently active version of Ghost a symlink to the content folder in the site root, or vice versa?
Knowing what the file structure should look like will help me to bridge the gap between How I Must Live and How It Should Be.
I’m simply over the moon that I can run Ghost at all in my current situation, and that’s thanks to the available options in ghost-cli. Thanks, and let me know if I can clarify further.
