I ran into a slight problem when running Ghost on my server. The issue occurred when I tried to log into the admin interface (
/ghost). It complained about my URL, giving me the following error:
Access Denied from url: unenglishable.com. Please use the url configured in config.js
I popped open the Chrome developer console and found that I was getting redirected from
unenglishable.com. My config.js url was set to
https://www.unenglishable.com, but my certificate is only valid for
unenglishable.com, so Chrome was redirecting to where the certificate was valid for. (I recently switched to Let's Encrypt's SSL service, Certbot)
I fixed this issue by changing my nginx config to point both unencrypted
http://unenglishable.com to SSL-encrypted
https://unenglishable.com via reverse proxy. I then updated my config.js to have
url: 'https://unenglishable.com. With redirect, I can now visit either www or non www and everything works just fine.
Hope this helps!
