I’ve setup a new Ghost blog on Ubuntu 16.04 at That works fine. However, when I go to I get a screen telling me to setup Ghost.

I currently have a CNAME record directing to
I have an A record for that directs it to by site IP

What I’ve tried:

1) Add both domains to SSL using certbot
2) Added both domains to Ghost config under servername
3) Restarted Ghost and NGINX
4) NGINX and Ghost config now show: server

I’m stuck now and not sure what else to try. Can anyone help please?
