Question

ERROR: failed to launch: determine start command: process type web was not found

I’m trying to deploy my front-end app that runs Meilisearch as a service. It passes the build process but fails at the deployment process with an error that I have researched but have still not yet found a solution to - ERROR: failed to launch: determine start command: process type web was not found.

Is this issue specific to Meilisearch or DigitalOcean? Also, what can be done about it?

Thanks in advance

Hi @massivebluelobster,

It’s hard to say, I assume you are trying to Deploy it on the App Platform, is that correct? If, yes can you please give more information about how are you approaching the deployment process?

Alternatively, if you are using the DigitalOcean Droplets, here is how you can deploy it
