I’m trying to deploy my the backend of my app for the first time using Render. I’ve followed the steps but am getting the following error:
Which is confusing for me as I have already specified ‘Backend’ as my root directory and Server.js sits directly within the Backend directory.
The project runs perfectly when I run it locally, using ‘node Server.js’ from Backend to get it up and running.
Any ideas would be really appreciated! Please let me know if you need any more info.
Well i was getting the same error when i was tying to deploy my backend as well but what worked for me is i changed my build command to :- npm install; npm run build
i really hope this also work for u
Hey @ aayushsingh7
Thanks for commenting! Forgive my ignorance, do you mean updating like this in the package.json file:
and then accordingly in the Render setup?
I have just tried this and I seem to be stuck in a deploy infinite loop so think I didn’t understand you correctly
Well no problem, i was taking about the build command here :-
and please make sure to correct your package.json build command as it was before because “npm install; npm run build” will result in infinite loop as u mentioned
i really hope this should fix the problem if not then we could connect on instagram as its really not convenient to discuss here🙌
The problem is solved! Weirdly, I just kept running it, with your idea and then back to my original and now it’s working and connected - thanks so much for your help and have a great day
