How can I deploy

Hi, for about two weeks, I’m trying to deploy Strapi, but I’m unable to access the Admin panel.

I don’t know how to do it, I’m so frustrated, and I want to use Strapi because I like it so much, I’ve played with it on my PC (not cloud hosting)

Can someone explain to me how to deploy Strapi? I’ve seen a few tutorials, but it’s not working for me, or I don’t understand it.

i ran into some issues starting pm2 following the official doc, have you tested manually running npm start from the project folder on your server? build your app for production first. if that works, check the pm2 settings.


Have you tried following the steps from the official documentation here, there is a section that explains how to deploy on DigitalOcean:

If you have followed those step by step instructions already, can you share with the exact error that you are getting so that I could try to advise you furhter?
