Ghost Admin is a blank page with missing css and js but /blog is working


I can’t access my ghost admin panel, not sure why. Last week I could do it and I’ve only modified a bit the NGINX, which after this happened I immediately undid, but to no avail.

In the end when I try to enter to the following error shown at the bottom appears.

  • What version of Ghost are you using?

    dev@example-master:/var/www/example/blog$ ghost -v
    Ghost-CLI version: 1.9.8
    Ghost version: 2.2.4 (at /var/www/example/blog)
  • What configuration?
    My stack is, NGINX server, and Next.js for the front-end + backend with Node.js

    server {
    # a bunch of SSL and HTTPS configurations go here
    location / {
      proxy_pass http://localhost:3000;
      proxy_http_version 1.1;
      proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
      proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
      proxy_set_header Host $host;
      proxy_cache_bypass $http_upgrade;
    location ^~ /blog {
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
      proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
      proxy_redirect off;
    location /budget/ {
      rewrite ^/budget(/.*)$ $1 break;
      proxy_pass http://aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd;
      proxy_set_header Host $host;
      proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
      proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto https;
      proxy_redirect off;
      location ~ /.well-known {
          allow all;

  • What steps could someone else take to reproduce the issue you’re having?

Not sure really. Everything was working perfectly yesterday. Today I just for another reason decided to do ghost restart after adding the following to the NGINX config:

rewrite ^(.*[^/])$ $1/ permanent;

After I found that I couldn’t access the ghost admin panel I undid that line and did the ghost restart and that’s where this odyssey started.

Note: the /budget/ route is pointing to an external server. Not sure if that’s worth knowing.

Any ideas what I should try and do to fix this? Any help would be appreciated :slight_smile:



@fillipvt what url value do you have set in your config.production.json file?


This is the whole config.production.json file:

  "url": "",
  "server": {
    "port": 2369,
    "host": ""
  "database": {
    "client": "mysql",
    "connection": {
      "host": "localhost",
      "user": "ghost-649",
      "password": "****",
      "database": "blog_prod"
  "mail": {
    "transport": "Direct"
  "logging": {
    "transports": [
  "process": "systemd",
  "paths": {
    "contentPath": "/var/www/example/blog/content"
  "bootstrap-socket": {
    "port": 8000,
    "host": "localhost"
