Setting the config url to https://.... crashes site

Linux 5.10.0-27-cloud-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.205-2 (2023-12-31) x86_64
Bitnami package for Ghost 5.75.1-0
on aws lightsail
once I change config.production.json url to from

and restarting ghost and apache , the site fails .

If I dont change it then I get mixed content messages.

What’s the specific error message, please?

it redirects to

If you’re planning to use https, your URL must be configured as https; can you share the mixed content errors you’re getting?

FeedbackPage.js:12 Mixed Content: The page at ‘’ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure resource ‘’. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

Do you have any kind of caching in place? If the URL in Ghost is set with https, the page (e.g. the home page) should reflect that, but right this second it’s not

I’ve wasted the day on this , just doesnt work , yes I’ve cleared the cache between config changes. if I change the url to https the site wont redirect. and if I dont i can access the site via https. but then ghost site throws mixed content errors

Can you clarify what you mean by this? I can provide guidance relating to setting up Ghost, but I don’t use Bitnami or Apache so I’m doing what I can.
