Redirection loop on new Ghost droplet

Posted March 10, 2020 1.3k views


I have recently spun up a new Ghost blog droplet and configured the DNS on Cloudflare. I was able to SSH in and finish the Ghost installation and open up the default port (2368 - sudo ufw allow 2368). Unfortunately, the actual domain isn’t loading so I can’t finalize the installation via //ip/ghost due to a “ERRTOOMANY_REDIRECTS” error in the browser.

Would anyone have any advice on how to debug this please?

Thank you

Note to myself in the future when I inevitably do this again - on Cloudflare / DNS, make sure to click the orange cloud icons to change Proxy status to say “DNS only”.

FWIW, SSL is completely off on Cloudflare.
