New Ghost blog not updating. Help?

One-Click Install Apps Ghost Applications Ubuntu

Hi,

I used the one click app install to set up a Ghost blog. I have set up sftp and added a new theme to the blog. I have also made some changes to the hbs files in the theme and am attempting to upload them via sftp (the same way I uploaded the theme).

It's weird - the FTP app on my Mac (Transmit) confirms that the file was transferred, but no matter how many times I refresh the page, restart Ghost, sign out and sign in, wait an hour - it doesn't update.

Any tips on what i'm doing wrong and how I can get this site to update?

Thanks.

This question was answered by @SphericalCow:

I may have ran into the same issue myself a few months ago. It turns out that the ghost blog has to be restarted to detect new themes.

According to the documentation at https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-digitalocean-ghost-application, you can restart the glost blog by using (as root, most likely)

service ghost restart
