Unable to deploy minimal next js app

Hi, I am trying to deploy a minimal nextjs app to render.

I ran the following command: npx create-next-app --use-npm, then pushed that code to github, connected to a render web service and then immediately got a build error. Here is the event log:

This is a default nextjs app installed with npm.
My build command is: npm install && npm run build

Everything builds and runs locally with no issues.

Any ideas what the issue might be?

Hi Anders,

What version of node are you using locally? Can you ensure that you’ve specified the same version on Render as well? This can be done via the methods listed in this doc: https://render.com/docs/node-version

Let me know if that helps.


I am running node v16.14.0
I added node version

  "engines": {
    "node": ">=16 <17"

And that fixed the issue. Thanks so much!

Nice, happy to hear that!
