Website not working after installation

Issue Summary
Hi all!

I’ve reinstalled ghost several times today. I can’t figure out what is the reason, but the installation completes successfully, but the site itself does not open. The domain is directed to the IP of the server.

Server IP:

Please help me to solve the problem…

Setup information

Node.js Version

  • v16.19.1*

How did you install Ghost?
Installation according to instructions ghost

Provide details of your host & operating system
Ubuntu, v22.04.2 LTS

Database type
mysqld 8.0.32

Browser & OS version

nginx config

server {
    listen 80;
    listen [::]:80;

    root /var/www/; # Used for SSL verification (

    location / {
        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;

    location ~ /.well-known {
        allow all;

    client_max_body_size 50m;

For starters, it looks like SSL (https) isn’t correctly configured. However, I can’t connect to your site.

Please confirm that Ghost is running without error, and try ghost setup ssl (note that too many attempts will prevent certificates being issued.)

Thank you very much!
The “ghost setup ssl” command helped. I saw in the logs that the problem is with crontab. In the end, I reinstalled everything and it worked!
