Hello @9740c53767b5413ab3f58b506dcdfc

HTTP 500 errors generally mean there’s a server error. For checking logs on your App Platform application, you can use DigitalOcean’s App Platform’s Logs panel. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the Apps section in the DigitalOcean Control Panel.
  2. Click on your App.
  3. In the Components tab, click on the name of the component you want to view the logs for.
  4. Click on the Logs tab, this should display logs for your app.
