Unable to finish Ghost restart command


I am trying to restart my Ghost installation on Digital Ocean. I followed the steps mentioned in How to restart your Ghost site on Digital Ocean, but every time I run the ghost restart command, it hangs and nothing happens.

Is there anything else I am missing or need to do in order to restart the server or view the site with updated content?


A little more information would be helpful…

  • why did you need to restart Ghost? Was there a 502 or 504 error as mentioned in the referenced article?
  • Share the messages you see
  • Share the output of ghost doctor
  • Anything else that may be relevant, e.g., OS version, database version etc.
