504 Gateway timeout: Failed to initialize cache on DO app platform

Hi there,

Our stage env is running on the digital ocean app platform and the last successful deployment was five days ago. We are running into this issue today. The Gateway is timing out due to failure to create an image cache. Error code below.

I tried forcing and rebuilding the option on the deploy button but still getting the same error.
