Two different sites when I install ghost locally

Hi guys!

Quick disclaimer: I’m a total noob.
I wanted to customize my site so I followed the instructions and installed ghost locally ( I have Ghost (Pro) I don’t know if that makes a difference).

But when I head to my localhost on my web browser, it just takes me to a completely other site. I had to create a new account and now the site is completely new as if all the stuff I had put in it disappeared.

The weird thing is that my site is still the same when I just connect to ghost normally.

So my question is: Why do I have 2 different websites? How do I fix this?


When you install Ghost locally, you’re installing a brand new instance of Ghost. The local install is generally used to get develop your theme to your liking, and once you’re happy with it, you upload the theme to your production (in this case Ghost (Pro)) instance.
