This site can’t be reached’s server IP address could not be found


Simple for someone who knows, but Ghost is out the box today for me. So:

Win 10

Installed Localhost.

Your admin interface is located at: localhost:2368/ghost/

Browse: localhost:2368/ghost/: This site can’t be reached’s server IP address could not be found.

Browse: localhost:2368/ opens Ghost home page

(http:// omitted from URLs ^ - newbie can’t post links here)

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks All


Going to be honest, this one is an absolute mystery.

If / is working /ghost/ should also be working - they’re served the same way on the same domain, so I don’t understand why one is throwing a domain error.

Can you share some more information about exactly how you installed Ghost? Maybe there’s a clue somewhere…


Hi Hannah

Installed, with yarn, as here: //

Dir: C:>users>DELL>ghost

(I see from another install blog - that it may need to be Dir: C:>users>DELL>documents>ghost?)

Will try



@royAB can you provide the contents of your config.development.json file? You should find it in the folder where you installed Ghost, should be C:>users>DELL>ghost based on your last comment.
