Image upload issue


I’m using the personal plan of the Ghost Pro offering. I am facing an issue while publishing my blogs. When I upload the cover image of a post, the image does not appear in the preview as well as the blog immediately. It takes at least half an hour before I can see the uploaded image along with the post.

My setup includes an NGINX server that I’m using to setup https over my custom domain and then a proxy pass to the Ghost url. My image upload issue started since the day I setup the NGINX server.

When I trace the redirects for the uploaded image, I see that it goes into an infinite loop of https to http to https redirection. After half an hour, the images are served directly from the https url.

I did try searching for a similar thread on the forum but couldn’t find any. Apologies if this has been asked and answered before.

Thanks in advance.

With regards,
