Installing Ghost ERROR: Exit status 1 / node index / ELIFECYCLE
Ever since DO changed there one click install for Ghost to cost $10 instead of $5 saying you can’t run ghost on a smaller droplet (which is total nonsense have a ghost blog running for 2-3 years on a $5 droplet.) I can’t even manually install ghost on any sized droplet. I have tried about 7 different tuts and Ubuntu 14/16 and I run into a similar error each time.
My last error. “Exit status 1” could mean the “Node Versions” is not supported but from what I can tell “node v6.9.5” is?
This isn’t even half my problems once I get ghost installed I need to find out how to move it a subfolder
/blog/ and serve a static site from
