I’ve tried all the suggestions in this post: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/can-t-restart-ghost-after-update-ghost-cli-commands-do-not-work-error
Steps to reproduce
cdinto ghost project (e.g.
Ghost command should return list of help instructions.
When I run
ghost help, nothing happens the command just hangs.
Out of ideas on this one. I’m just trying to restart ghost after making a change to default.hbs
I’ve also noticed that my ghost droplet has been ridiculously slow. Taking 20 seconds or so just to load the homepage which has a few static assets, nothing more. Was seeing some 5xx gateway timeout errors intermittently. Monitoring graphs show 99% CPU and Memory usage. Is that normal for the $6/mo tier ghost droplet?

Let’s start with the usage question. I believe the minimum RAM for ghost installation is 1GB , (as stated in their documentation) and for lower than 1GB we you use swap memory. Having said that, that can cause some slowness.
A couple of things to check according to GHOST docs again
Are you using the default theme?
The theme is the place where you as a user have the most ability to cause performance bottlenecks by accident, as it were.
Are you up-to-date?
We regularly test and make improvements to performance, so it should pay off to keep up-to-date. If your performance decreases significantly after an update, we’d want to know about it.
Additionally, can you see if you can use the ghost-cli with your root user or you can’t use it with it as well? If that’s the case you can try and install ghost cli on your user by running the following command:
I ssh’d into the droplet and ran
reboot. Everything seems to be working now, the slow speeds appear to be gone, and
ghostcommands are working. Will keep this ticket updated if something changes or goes similarly wrong again.
