Ghost home icon redirects to http://localhost:2368?

I recently migrated my Ghost install from one droplet to another. I exported content, copied the files out of the old droplet and into the new. The old droplet was a manually installed version of Ghost and the new was a one-click install from digital ocean. You can see this by going to the below link and clicking the site icon in the upper left.

Now, when I click the icon in the upper left corner of the page, the link is clearly wrong. I’ve checked the config.js file and updated the production section to be what I think is correct:

config = { // ### Production // When running Ghost in the wild, use the production environment. // Configure your URL and mail settings here production: { url: ‘’, mail: {}, database: { client: ‘sqlite3’, connection: { filename: path.join(__dirname, ‘/content/data/ghost.db’) }, debug: false },

    server: {
        host: '',
        port: '2368'

Only thing I’m not sure about is if the server block should be modified to something else. Should I try changing that to my blog’s domain and the SSL port 443?

Ok, answered my own last question. Looks like the 1-click droplet is using Upstart by default, so instead of /etc/init.d/ the ghost.conf file is actually in /etc/init/. Good knowledge for the future.
