Build failing when deploying to Heroku


Any help would be much appreciated.

I’m running docker on Wappler 5.0.2 using a Mac M1. I can successfully deploy on my local docker instance and everything works fine.

However, my deployment is failing when publishing to Heroku. I’m using a Heroku Postgres DB also.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I am not an expert, but I have deployed to Heroku. One thing to check is if your Heroku nodeJS & DB settings are exactly the same as your project setup.

Heroku recommends specifying the exact version of Node.js, Yarn, or npm that you are using locally in the engines field -

I ended up going with Docker for now, even though I’d been using Heroku prior to learning Wappler. Heroku was too expensive in my opinion for what ended up being a bit of a bumpy ride (and if it isn’t going to be smooth, I’d rather pay less and fix stuff myself)

Edit to add: @byrnejamoe If you have the account permissions in Heroku, you can also try upgrading the Heroku database or app platform (or both) to a newer version without doing anything to your Wappler file. I notice that Heroku’s defaults are a few versions older than Wappler’s defaults. If you do this, just deploy again from Wappler after the upgrade completes on the Heroku site. On our Heroku plan, one could roll back if you didn’t like the upgrade – not sure if that is universal, so if this project is live, proceed with caution :slight_smile:
