How to deploy PHP application with Dokku


I tried to deploy a PHP application (built with Yii2) with dokku and I got these messages when I ran “dokku ps:rebuild <app_name>” command:

-----> Cleaning up… -----> Building <app_name> from herokuish… -----> Adding BUILD_ENV to build environment… -----> Fetching custom buildpack -----> Unable to select a buildpack

Can you help me or do you have detailed tutorial for deploying PHP application?
