I’m new here and just setup my first ghost install for testing. It’s an internal only site while I work on getting used to it. I’ve run into a few issues and could use some help if you have the time.
Issue #1 How can I manually unlock the owners account when it becomes locked? I tried poking around in the mysql database and it looks like the account is “active” Is there a way to change the Brute force protection settings? Lockout duration and attempts?
Issue #2 How can I add users (authors, and editors) Manually I don’t want to go through the hassle of e-mailing and verifying and all that stuff. I know all my staff and I’d prefer to just enter their info manually and then tell them what their password is verbally, then can then login and change it as needed.
Issue #3 What’s the deal with e-mail setup? I have access to an SMTP server can I use that instead of Mailgun? Can someone link me to the correct way to setup an SMTP connection. I tried editing the config.production.json according to https://ghost.org/docs/concepts/config/#mail but I have no idea what to put in for the “service” I’m also having a hard time with the json stuff itself I keep getting the message “Message: Config file is not valid JSON” when I copy and paste the example into the config.productions file. Can these settings be put into the admin GUI for so JSON illiterate people can use the mail features please?
Thanks for looking, and thanks for making ghost!
