Getting my application to work on the App platform

I’ve copied and had a look at the example repo for a PHP based application, my folder structure in the repo is as follows


So my actual “application” that I want apache to serve from is in under _site.

My gulpfile copies stuff from src, compiles it and puts it into _site/assets/ which i’ve got working as apart of the build process.

I did try just have it move _site/* to /workspace/* but didn’t feel like that was the best thing to do, Anyone have some suggestions or what I can do?

Currently its running heroku-php-apache2 to start it, is there a way I can easily even change the apache path rather than moving stuff?

Hey there!

You should be able to specify the document root folder to use in your heroku-php-apache2 run command. Something like:

heroku-php-apache2 _site/

As App Platform uses Heroku build-packs the configuration is similar.

Hope it helps!
