Keep Ghost Alive on Windows XP, 7 and 8

The best way to keep Ghost alive at this point is to use the following commands in a elevated command prompt window (right click on the command prompt program and click Run as Administrator)

 cd /path/to/ghost/folder  
 start /b "npm start"

This will start Ghost in the background of the command prompt. It will still stop if you close the command prompt window. Right now the program Forever has a bug that does not allow it to work on Windows. Otherwise, that would be the best way to keep this running. We will update this post when the issue with Forever on Windows has been resolved. If you have a solution for running a node application on Windows like Ghost please leave a comment below so we can share.
