Hosting a Ghost Blog on DigitalOcean with Cloudflare and Static Folders

cloudflare Nov 15, 2019

We have just released the new King's Centre for Military Health Research website, you can see it here, which is powered by Ghost and hosted on DigitalOcean. We've designed the site to be our main platform for outreach and engagement with end-users and participants.

One issue we encountered was how can we use Cloudflare for https and to host static files such as for our conference. Now, many solutions exist, but here is how we approached it. Feel free to modify and edit as you see fit.
