Adding a domain to an app is taking forever

I successfully deployed a docker container to the APP platform of DO. The container contains a caddy server serving a static website. The app is accessible by the generated domain, but when I want to add a custom domain, it’s been stuck in “Configuring” for hours now. I’m starting to wonder whether this will ever be done, as I didn’t find any logs or anything about how long this might take! Also, would it pop up in the Networking part of the DO cloud once it’s finished?

The domain btw. is managed by Digital Ocean, the SOA is

Same issue, anyone have tried to resolved the issue? It’s been more than 72 hrs on my end, and the status is still the same.

Not sure if related or relavant… Had the same issue a few days ago. I moved all DNS records to Digitalocean. My records were looking fine, but the domain just couldn’t exit the “Configuring” state. Microsoft Exchange and other connected services picked up new namesevers just fine, but DO kept having problems.

I removed the domain 3 times and it still didn’t work. When I sent a HTTP request using Postman, immediately after I readded the domain, Cloudflare first reported error 1001 (Conflict) but after a few minutes, the response changed to 302, so I knew something was happening.

After 3 attempts I looked at my DNS records again and found that I had a CAA record which allowed Let’s Encrypt to issue certificates for this domain. Again, not sure if it’s related, but after I deleted the record, deleted the domain again and readded it to DO, the setup finished in 2 minutes with HTTPS enabled…

Same here…I can successfully add a custom domain sometimes, but other times it remains in “configuring” – what is going on here?!?
