Ghost blog content not secure warning

Two people standing in front of a wall with surveillance cameras.

Are you receiving an error in your browser console and a pop-up in Chrome browser that content is loaded over HTTP, and it needs to be https? If yes, then you came to the right place.

Mixed Content: The page at ‘‘ was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure resource ‘‘. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

In this tutorial, I will demonstrate how to remove this warning and load all the content over https.

NOTE: This tutorial is demonstrated for ghost v2. If your blog is v1 it may differ, but I highly doubt that. The majority of ghost blog versions adhere to similar standards. If you are having problems. Please leave a comment below.

Assuming you have installed your ghost blog correctly and have your site hosted at /var/www/ghost. If your web hosting path is different. Navigate to that folder path and execute the below commands.

  1. By default, your site is set as HTTP. You can change that to HTTPS by executing the below command.

Navigate to the correct hosting path.

cd /var/www/ghost

Set site to HTTPS

ghost config set url
  1. Once you have set your site URL to HTTPS, you can restart your ghost blog by executing the below command.
ghost restart
