Deploying strapi template

Your issue

I am trying to deploy a strapi from template. But it seems to fail on creating the PostgreSQL, it is just sitting there saying “waiting” for 10 min now. And the overall project says failure.

I didn’t do anything but selecting the template and giving it a name. So I am confused how it is already failing from the get go.

Here is the log from where it fails:

It looks like something went wrong when Qovery wanted to build your application. Did you initialize Strapi in the repository created with the command npx create-strapi-app my-project --quickstart ?

No, I am 100% just follow Qovery own video on youtube on how to deploy your first app: Deploy your first app with Qovery - YouTube

The video only show how to set the Qovery environment to run the Strapi app. The command I wrote init the source code for the app.

Have you seen the video? I is supposed to do all that via the template.

It won’t do it. You have to init the source code with the command.
