Error adding static site for staticfiles with a dockerfile.

Connected Tutorial
This question is a follow-up to this tutorial:

I was deploying the staticfiles static site and received this error:

when combined with dockerfile_path, output_dir “staticfiles” must be an absolute path

Does anyone know how to determine the absolute path to use?

Hello @adamFire

You can set the output directory the same as the “STATIC_ROOT” setting in settings.py. If you are following the documentation which is linked in your question then you can set the output directory as “staticfiles” and it should work.

If you are experiencing any issues then please reach out to support team.
