Unable to view the cover images on the brand new Ghost instance


I recently migrated my ghost blog over to DigitalOcean at www.jayeshkawli.com. However, I am unable to view cover images for any blog post. I updated the images/ directory on server and all the images are present.

I am also using the same theme I was using on my old site, restarted the Ghost instance.

Looks like /content/images/size/ is empty where it expects to find cover images. Is there any way to fix it or at least generate these cover images on the fly?

You should upload the entire content folder, and ensure ownership and permissions are set correctly for the Ghost user.

I am not sure if I need to upload the entire content folder. I uploaded media, files, and images folder, I think that should be at least for images.
How can I make sure ownership and permissions are set correctly for the Ghost user?

Yet, the size folder is empty? Maybe you didn’t have permissions to write the files?

chown -R ghost:ghost /var/www/<Ghost folder>
chmod -R 775 /var/www/<Ghost folder>

Yes, that was it. Thank you so much @mjw for your help and the resolution of my problem. Appreciate it.
