Build/deploy hanging forever

My digital ocean deployment is hanging forever here. Why is this happening and how do I fix it?:

Hi there,

It looks like that you have a custom build command:

[service] [2024-05-03 05:58:09] │ Running custom build command: gunicorn --worker-tmp-dir /dev/shm core.wsgi

You should not have any gunicorn run commands in the build stage. The build stage is only for installing dependencies.

The gunicorn run command should be in the deploy stage instead. This is when your app is get deployed and needs to be run.

Let me know how it goes once you remove that command from the build stage!
