Image resizing not working in any theme

My local dev ghost install resizes images fine. But, my self hosted production server install does not. And, it doesn’t see to matter what theme I use. When a theme seems to call for an image that requires being resized the directory path to the new size in the html is valid but it points to an empty image file that doesn’t exist on the server. I assume there is some sorta permission issue but I can’t figure out where. Likely related…I recently noticed a strange thing where if I upload a publication icon, then save it, I get a broken image on the /ghost admin upload icon placeholder (since it’s presumably needing to get resized.)

I am at a loss for how to further investigate this and was wondering if folks have any advice?

My server is running v5.68.0.

Sharp is installed.
ghost@5.68.0 /var/www/ghost/versions/5.68.0
└─┬ @tryghost/image-transform@1.2.6
└── sharp@0.30.7

Permissions seem correct /var/www/ghost/content/images/size

ghost log doesn’t return anything related to images.

config.production.json is pretty normal looking

  "process": "systemd",
  "paths": {
    "contentPath": "/var/www/ghost/content"
ghost doctor

I posted a few other bits here:

Turned out to be an nginx config issue.

Solved: by adding a rule to my nginx config to forward requests with URIs starting with /content/images/size

sudo vi domainName.me-ssl.conf

# Rule to forward requests with URIs starting with /content/images/size to the Ghost process (or any other backend process)
location ^~ /content/images/size/ {
proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:2368;
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 $scheme;
}
