On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Some operations such as upgrading Ghost require the updating of the Ghost CLI. To update the Ghost CLI follow these steps:
