How to troubleshoot common issues in Ghost on Hostinger?
Here are some steps to troubleshoot common issues in Ghost on Hostinger:
- Check the error logs: The error logs provide valuable information about the issues you are facing. To access the error logs, go to your Hostinger account and navigate to the 'File Manager' or 'FTP' section. Look for a file named 'error.log' or something similar in the Ghost installation directory. Open it and search for any error messages or warnings that could give you a clue about the problem.
- Verify Ghost installation: Ensure that Ghost is correctly installed on your Hostinger account. Double-check the installation steps and make sure all the required files and directories are in place. Also, check the file permissions to ensure they are set correctly.
- Check configuration files: Inspect the Ghost configuration files like 'config.production.json' or 'config.development.json'. Verify that the database connection details, domain settings, and other configurations are accurate. Incorrect configurations can lead to various issues.
- Test database connection: If your Ghost site relies on a database, check the database connection. Ensure that the database credentials in the configuration files are correct and that the database server is up and running. You can also try resetting the database connection by restarting the database server.
- Clear cache and restart Ghost: Sometimes, issues can be resolved by clearing Ghost's cache. In the Ghost installation directory, look for a folder called '.ghost' or 'content'. Inside that folder, delete the 'cache' directory. Afterward, restart Ghost by using the command 'ghost restart' through SSH or by rebooting the server.
- Disable third-party themes or plugins: If you have recently installed a new theme or plugin, it might be causing conflicts. Temporarily disable any new themes or plugins and check if the issue is resolved. If so, you can try re-enabling them one-by-one to identify the problematic one.
- Update Ghost: Ensure that you are running the latest version of Ghost. Outdated versions can have bugs and compatibility issues. Use the command 'ghost update' to update Ghost to the latest version.
- Seek help from the Ghost community: If you have followed all the troubleshooting steps and still cannot resolve the issue, consider reaching out to the Ghost community for assistance. Ghost has an active user community where you can ask questions and get help from other users and developers.
