App Platform build timeout after 60 minutes

I have a static site, but it just has a lot of files.

App Platform times out after 60 minutes during the build phase, just checking out and deploying the site.

Any tips to be able to deploy a static site with a lot of files? I don’t think I can extend that build timeout.

Hey @michaelchofish,

That’s a lot of time for the build phase. Usually, you shouldn’t store that much data on the App Platform, that is what SPACES is for. DigitalOcean offers a product called Spaces, which is compatible with Amazon’s S3 buckets. Spaces provide programmatic access to file storage at scale.

To use Spaces in your application, read the Spaces quickstart to create a Space, and then begin using the Space in your code via the RESTful API or existing AWS S3 tools.
