When updating PUBLIC_URL, change doesn’t take affect until Heroku redeploy #1

On first install, a PUBLIC_URL of is initially used. When you add a custom domain name in Heroku, and then update the PUBLIC_URL in Heroku environment variables, Ghost won’t pick up this change until a redeploy happens.

Redeploys mean that you need access to git on the command line (or have your Heroku app linked to a Github repo), which is not ideal.

You can commit an empty commit:

And there is a relatively new Heroku plugin, Releases Retry, that doesn’t require a git commit but does need heroku command line tools.


  • fully document connecting git to your heroku app and doing an empty git commit
