Ghost blog reverts to old theme when Droplet restarted

I’m using Ghost on CentOS to host a blog, which is working great so far. The only thing that’s strange is that whenever I restart the Droplet the blog reverts back to an older theme, any logo or cover image that was there dissapears, etc.

Any ideas on why this might be happening? The site is Linux Howto.

Thank you.

I have the same problem, I forgot to pay on time and my droplet was stopped. But now my balance is $0.00, I started the droplet but the ghost is like everything has gone. What should I do?

Hi Neil,

Can you provide a little more information? Any of the following would help community members diagnose your problem:

  • relevant configuration files?
  • Are you using the one-click image provided by DigitalOcean?
  • Can you list the steps you take to change the theme? (Put another way, how I can I reproduce your issue on my own Droplet?)

If you need to post large code blocks or config files for troubleshooting, these sites are useful:

Good Luck!
