Mixed content problem

I am running into a weird mixed content related error when serving discourse using a digitalocean droplet:

digitalocean / cloudflare is handling the SSL part, so this is not configured via Discourse or an nginx based reverse proxy. nginx simply forwards incoming requests to the Docker container running Discourse:

server {
        listen 80; listen [::]:80;
        server_name mysite.org;

        location / {
                proxy_pass http://unix:/var/discourse/shared/standalone/nginx.http.sock:;
                proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
                proxy_http_version 1.1;
                proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
                proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
                proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;

All assets seem to be loaded fine over https, excepts for this 1 file. By entering the app and searching the postgres database I’ve figured out that it is the file /images/discours.png that is causing the problem. I have tried deleting this file and any references to it in the postgres database in an attempt to just avoid loading this image all together, but obviously Discourse re-adds the image when rebuilding the app (at least, I assume it does).

Hopefully someone can give some advice.

Is that a default site logo? Did you try uploading another one to override it?


Is that a default site logo

Yes, it is a file called discourse.png, so I assume it is a default site logo. In the db it always has an id of -6 (uploads table).

Did you try uploading another one to override it?

Yes, also tried that. Then the same problem applies to the custom, uploaded logo.
